Jesus Cleanses Ten Lepers

Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan.
Then said Jesus, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”

Luke 17: 15-19



  • We pray for all who have been tragically affected, the families of those killed and who have lost their homes and livelihood in the recent Northern NSW bushfires
  • In Anti-Poverty Week we pray for all across our nation who struggle each day to make ends meet. May God give them strength and hope and guard their minds and hearts from despair. Guide us all in ways we can reach out with helping hands.
