Daily Prayer & Reading for January 19, 2023

In the bitter cold of winter, Lord, I ask that You bring comfort to those without homes. Ignite the flame of compassion within us all to care for those less fortunate. Help us be Your hands, caring for the needy people of our world. Amen.


Mark 3: 7-12

Jesus withdrew toward the sea with his disciples.
A large number of people followed from Galilee and from Judea.
Hearing what he was doing,
a large number of people came to him also from Jerusalem,
from Idumea, from beyond the Jordan,
and from the neighborhood of Tyre and Sidon.
He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd,
so that they would not crush him.
He had cured many and, as a result, those who had diseases
were pressing upon him to touch him.
And whenever unclean spirits saw him they would fall down before him
and shout, “You are the Son of God.”
He warned them sternly not to make him known.

En el amargo frío del invierno, Señor, te pido que traigas consuelo a los que carecen de hogar. Enciende la llama de la compasión dentro de todos nosotros para cuidar de los menos afortunados. Ayúdanos a ser Tus manos, cuidando de los necesitados de nuestro mundo. Amén.


Mc 3, 7-12

En aquel tiempo, Jesús se retiró con sus discípulos a la orilla del mar, seguido por una muchedumbre de galileos. Una gran multitud, procedente de Judea y Jerusalén, de Idumea y Transjordania y de la parte de Tiro y Sidón, habiendo tenido noticias de lo que Jesús hacía, se trasladó a donde él estaba.Entonces rogó Jesús a sus discípulos que le consiguieran una barca para subir en ella, porque era tanta la multitud, que estaba a punto de aplastarlo.En efecto, Jesús había curado a muchos, de manera que todos los que padecían algún mal, se le echaban encima para tocarlo. Cuando los poseídos por espíritus inmundos lo veían, se echaban a sus pies y gritaban: “Tú eres el Hijo de Dios”. Pero Jesús les prohibía que lo manifestaran.
