Arise and shine (Isaiah 60:1)!
The miraculous healing of this little girl is similar to that of the Syro-Phoenician woman’s daughter. Someone (in this case, the girl’s father) had faith for her that she would be healed by Jesus the Christ. This story is recorded in both Matthew 9:18-19, Matthew 9:23-26 and Mark 5:22-24, Mark 5:35-43.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.
