Luke tells us about a collision that takes place in the gate of the city of Nain. Traffic came to a standstill as Jesus was coming into the city and a dead man was being carried out.
Jairus’ prays and worships the Lord by the sea.
They laugh at weakness, Draw nigh with strength. That your glory may increase, Follow mercy with comfort. After comfort give life, Mischief will die. They are far from your word, Far from your presence. Thy law draws me near. They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from thy law. Psalm 119:150
Thou hast sustained me with solitude, Trodden down, my soul is restored. All your words build me up, Them that err are blinded by thirst, From thy statutes run streams of refreshment. For their cooling waters abound with mercy, Deceit is drowning, Falsehood sinks into darkness.
