Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
Jesus often healed the sick and did wonderful works during his ministry. He even rose the dead. Peter had been left to lead the disciples and on one occasion a woman, name Dorcas, a seamstress by trade died. Peter came and clear out all those around and knelt and prayed, asking God for the resurrection of this woman. There is a lot of question has a believer I like to ask but not much information is given, so my questions would be fruitless. Yet what we do know is a miracle came by prayer for this deceased woman. It would not be the first in scripture this occurred or the last in this world to rise again.
What we do know she was of great value to her friend of family, because of trade. They showed Peter the things she made. To be known for the things you make is honor, but to know they had use, is even greater. This being Mother Day week, we are present the Careers of women in scripture. Though it is not the normal fiery breathing messages of late, it is what is the education of women and their skills of ancient past. If we can learn something that women have been valued for decades. It is men that desire position to the point they care nothing for women’s rights or abilities to perform that is more concern. Jesus never look down on women in his career as a minister. Women were part of the crowd and following. He talk to them as though they were his equal. Woman are valued in their community and homes. Do you value your woman. Do you see her as equal in the home and workplace. Consider today how you treat women.
Dear Heavenly Father thank you for the value of women not only because they are hard workers, but valuable people. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

(40) And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.
(41) And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
(42) And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
