The Right Wording Leads to a Healing

A leper approached Jesus, worshiping Him, and said, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean” (Matthew 8:2). The leper knew who Jesus was, obvious by the fact that he worshiped Jesus and then with the right words showed that he understood a healing of the leprosy would come based on the power and will of Jesus.
The leper did not say, “If you are able…” for the leper knew that Jesus could heal him, but the leper knew it was whether Jesus was willing to do it.
How do you approach God in prayer? Do you worship Him with your words? Are you persuaded He has the power? Do you understand that all things that we ask of Him must be within His will?
