Daily Prayer & Reading for January 4, 2023

Heavenly Father, I look forward to the experiences that lie before me this year. Be by my side as I wake each morning and watch over my family and friends. Help me to keep You always in my heart as I make daily decisions, go about my day and interact with those around me. Thank You for blessing me with each new day. Amen.

John 1:35-42
John was standing with two of his disciples,
and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said,
“Behold, the Lamb of God.”
The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus.
Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them,
“What are you looking for?”
They said to him, “Rabbi” (which translated means Teacher),
“where are you staying?”
He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”
So they went and saw where he was staying,
and they stayed with him that day.
It was about four in the afternoon.
Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter,
was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus.
He first found his own brother Simon and told him,
“We have found the Messiah,” which is translated Christ.
Then he brought him to Jesus.
Jesus looked at him and said,
“You are Simon the son of John;
you will be called Cephas,” which is translated Peter.

Padre nuestro que estás en los cielos, vela por los que luchan contra las adicciones. Tanto si apuestan constantemente
como si se ven incapaces de dejar de comer, fumar o beber, guía a los adictos hacia tus brazos sanadores y misericordiosos.
Ayúdales a poner su confianza en Ti, Señor, para que puedan dejar atrás los hábitos que les mantienen cautivos. Amén.

Jn 1, 35-42
En aquel tiempo, estaba Juan el Bautista con dos de sus discípulos, y fijando los ojos en Jesús, que pasaba, dijo: “Éste es el Cordero de Dios”. Los dos discípulos, al oír estas palabras, siguieron a Jesús. Él se volvió hacia ellos, y viendo que lo seguían, les preguntó: “¿Qué buscan?” Ellos le contestaron: “¿Dónde vives, Rabí?” (Rabí significa ‘maestro’). Él les dijo: “Vengan a ver”. Fueron, pues, vieron dónde vivía y se quedaron con él ese día. Eran como las cuatro de la tarde. Andrés, hermano de Simón Pedro, era uno de los dos que oyeron lo que Juan el Bautista decía y siguieron a Jesús. El primero a quien encontró Andrés, fue a su hermano Simón, y le dijo: “Hemos encontrado al Mesías” (que quiere decir ‘el Ungido’). Lo llevó a donde estaba Jesús y éste, fijando en él la mirada, le dijo: “Tú eres Simón, hijo de Juan. Tú te llamarás Kefás” (que significa Pedro, es decir, ‘roca’).
