Daily Prayer & Reading for January 11, 2023

Help me to share Your Word, O Lord, through my everyday actions. Whether I am setting an example for a child, sharing ideas with a co-worker or conversing with a stranger, help me to remember that my words and actions leave a lasting impression. I pray that every encounter today will be beneficial and meaningful. Amen.

Mark 1:29-39

On leaving the synagogue
Jesus entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John.
Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever.
They immediately told him about her.
He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up.
Then the fever left her and she waited on them.
When it was evening, after sunset,
they brought to him all who were ill or possessed by demons.
The whole town was gathered at the door.
He cured many who were sick with various diseases,
and he drove out many demons,
not permitting them to speak because they knew him.
Rising very early before dawn,
he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed.
Simon and those who were with him pursued him
and on finding him said, “Everyone is looking for you.”
He told them, “Let us go on to the nearby villages
that I may preach there also.
For this purpose have I come.”
So he went into their synagogues, preaching and driving out demons
throughout the whole of Galilee.

Ayúdame a compartir tu Palabra, Señor, a través de mis acciones cotidianas. Ya sea dando ejemplo a un niño, compartiendo ideas con un compañero de trabajo o conversando con un desconocido, ayúdame a recordar que mis palabras y acciones dejan una impresión duradera. Te ruego que cada encuentro de hoy sea beneficioso y significativo.  Amén.

Mc 1, 29-39

En aquel tiempo, al salir Jesús de la sinagoga, fue con Santiago y Juan a casa de Simón y Andrés. La suegra de Simón estaba en cama, con fiebre, y enseguida le avisaron a Jesús. Él se le acercó, y tomándola de la mano, la levantó. En ese momento se le quitó la fiebre y se puso a servirles.
Al atardecer, cuando el sol se ponía, le llevaron a todos los enfermos y poseídos del demonio, y todo el pueblo se apiñó junto a la puerta. Curó a muchos enfermos de diversos males y expulsó a muchos demonios, pero no dejó que los demonios hablaran, porque sabían quién era él.
De madrugada, cuando todavía estaba muy oscuro, Jesús se levantó, salió y se fue a un lugar solitario, donde se puso a orar. Simón y sus compañeros lo fueron a buscar, y al encontrarlo, le dijeron: “Todos te andan buscando”. Él les dijo: “Vamos a los pueblos cercanos para predicar también allá el Evangelio, pues para eso he venido”. Y recorrió toda Galilea, predicando en las sinagogas y expulsando a los demonios.
