Transcript Transcript

At that time, a man came up to Jesus and kneeling before him said, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and he suffers terribly; for often he falls into the fire, and often into the water. And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not heal him.”
And Jesus answered, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to me.” And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly.
Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” He said to them, “Because you have no faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith, even as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. But this kind never comes out except by prayer and fasting.”
As they were traveling together through Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill Him, and He will rise on the third day.”

"Thank you so much. I have been a listener for many years now. I so cherish the music and wonderful, inspirational podcasts. We moved from the U.S. to Serbia eight months ago for my husband's job. Even though we are living in an Orthodox county and we attend Orthodox church here, I am not a native speaker. Being able to listen to Ancient Faith Radio is such a blessing to me and to my family. My two children love to go to sleep at night listening to AFR. I am so grateful that they are still able to do that all the way over here."
