Matthew 8:5-13, Mark 11:22-24

Mat 8:5-13

(5)  When Jesus entered Capernaum, a Roman officer met him and begged for help:

(6)  "Sir, my servant is sick in bed at home, unable to move and suffering terribly."

(7)  "I will go and make him well," Jesus said.

(8)  "Oh no, sir," answered the officer. "I do not deserve to have you come into my house. Just give the order, and my servant will get well.

(9)  I, too, am a man under the authority of superior officers, and I have soldiers under me. I order this one, 'Go!' and he goes; and I order that one, 'Come!' and he comes; and I order my slave, 'Do this!' and he does it."

(10)  When Jesus heard this, he was surprised and said to the people following him, "I tell you, I have never found anyone in Israel with faith like this.

(11)  I assure you that many will come from the east and the west and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the feast in the Kingdom of heaven.

(12)  But those who should be in the Kingdom will be thrown out into the darkness, where they will cry and gnash their teeth."

(13)  Then Jesus said to the officer, "Go home, and what you believe will be done for you." And the officer's servant was healed that very moment.

Mar 11:22-24

(22)  Jesus answered them, "Have faith in God.

(23)  I assure you that whoever tells this hill to get up and throw itself in the sea and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.

(24)  For this reason I tell you: When you pray and ask for something, believe that you have received it, and you will be given whatever you ask for.
