Daily Prayer & Reading for January 18, 2023

I pray today, Lord, for the children of the world who have no family to call their own. Open the hearts of those capable of caring for these children so that they are given every opportunity to succeed in life. May they find a home in You, seeking out Your comfort in times of need. Amen.


Mark 3: 1-6

Jesus entered the synagogue.
There was a man there who had a withered hand.
They watched Jesus closely
to see if he would cure him on the sabbath
so that they might accuse him.
He said to the man with the withered hand,
“Come up here before us.”
Then he said to the Pharisees,
“Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil,
to save life rather than to destroy it?”
But they remained silent.
Looking around at them with anger
and grieved at their hardness of heart,
Jesus said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.”
He stretched it out and his hand was restored.
The Pharisees went out and immediately took counsel
with the Herodians against him to put him to death.


18 de Enero

Rezo hoy, Señor, por los niños del mundo que no tienen una familia a la que llamar suya. Abre los corazones de aquellos capaces de cuidar de estos niños para que tengan todas las oportunidades de triunfar en la vida. Que encuentren un hogar en Ti, buscando Tu consuelo en tiempos de necesidad. Amén.

Mc 3, 1-6


En aquel tiempo, Jesús entró en la sinagoga, donde había un hombre que tenía tullida una mano. Los fariseos estaban espiando a Jesús para ver si curaba en sábado y poderlo acusar. Jesús le dijo al tullido: “Levántate y ponte allí en medio”.

Después les preguntó: “¿Qué es lo que está permitido hacer en sábado, el bien o el mal? ¿Se le puede salvar la vida a un hombre en sábado o hay que dejarlo morir?” Ellos se quedaron callados. Entonces, mirándolos con ira y con tristeza, porque no querían entender, le dijo al hombre: “Extiende tu mano”. La extendió, y su mano quedó sana.

Entonces se fueron los fariseos y comenzaron a hacer planes con los del partido de Herodes, para matar a Jesús.
