Jesus’ Blessings, Healings and Prayers
Jesus turns back to the crowd and tells them to go home and ponder his words—in the meantime he will go back to heaven and visit other lost tribes of Israel, but will be back the following day.
Seeing that the crowd’s disappointment overing hearing Jesus’ announcement of departure, Jesus mercifully offers to heal their sick and afflicted.
The sick, lame, blind, and all otherwise afflicted come forth, and Jesus heals them as they worship him.
Jesus calls for all the children to come forward.
After all the children gather near, Jesus asks everyone to kneel down.
Jesus begins to pray, and expresses concern for the wickedness of the people.
Jesus prays such spectacularly marvelous things that they cannot be written.
Jesus finishes his prayer, stands up, and seeing that the crowd is completely overwhelmed, asks them to arise, telling them that his joy is full.
Jesus weeps, then takes the children one by one and blesses them, telling the people to behold their little ones.
The people look up, the heavens open, and angels come down and encircle the children.
