Psalm 41:1-3 (ESV)

1 Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him;

the Lord protects him and keeps him alive;he is called blessed in the land; you do not give him up to the will of his enemies.

The Lord sustains him on his sickbed;in his illness you restore him to full health.

 

Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)

Mark 1:30-34 (ESV)

30 Now Simon's mother-in-law lay ill with a fever, and immediately they told him about her.

31 And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

32 That evening at sundown they brought to him all who were sick or oppressed by demons.

33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door.

34 And he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons. And he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.
