Day 10-Mark 5

Mark 5 primarily records the healing ministry of Jesus. It includes the story of a demon-possessed man, a woman who suffered from bleeding for twelve years, and the daughter of Jairus, a synagogue ruler.

Meditation 1: The Story of Jairus’ Daughter

When Jairus asked Jesus to heal his daughter, she was still alive. However, while Jesus was on his way to Jairus’ house, Jairus received news that his daughter had died. Let’s examine Jesus’ words and actions at this time.

1-1) Jesus told Jairus, who was with him, not to fear but to only believe.

1-2) Jesus went to Jairus’ house with only Peter, James, and John, the brother of James.

1-3) Jesus said, “The child (Jairus’ daughter) is not dead but sleeping.”

1-4) After sending out the people who were laughing, Jesus entered the room where the child was lying with her parents and the disciples he brought.

1-5) When Jesus said, “Arise,” the girl immediately got up and walked.

Meditation 2: Principles Discovered in the Healing of Jairus’ Daughter

2-1) Do not fear but believe – Jesus did not hurry even in a serious situation, possibly due to his confidence in God’s work.

2-2) Jesus took only his closest disciples – It seems he chose to be accompanied by those with firm faith, considering the seriousness of death.

2-3) Jesus entered the room with only those who believed and were ready to pray in faith, including the girl’s parents and the three disciples he brought. Jesus seemed to take the issue of death seriously and dealt with it with concern.

Meditation 3: Jesus said, “If you cannot believe in me, believe through the healing works I do, the demons I cast out, and the dead I raise, as they show that God has sent me.”


1.In the future, when facing illness or situations that seem to be the work of Satan, I resolve to proclaim in the name of Jesus:

  • I declare that I am already a child of God, saved by the blood of Jesus.
  • I believe in the power of the blood already within me.
  • I am confident that the Holy Spirit dwells within me.
  • I remember that I have already been transferred from death to life.
  • Knowing that the living water flows from my belly, Satan cannot reside within me.

2. When important prayers are needed, I will gather with co-laborers who believe in God’s power and do not doubt, to pray together.
