Daily Prayer & Reading for February 6, 2023

Jesus spoke the words, “I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Help us to always remember, Lord, that You will be by our side through our everyday trials and tribulations. Help to ease our minds and to never doubt Your ultimate plan. Amen.


Mark 6:53-56

After making the crossing to the other side of the sea,
Jesus and his disciples came to land at Gennesaret
and tied up there.
As they were leaving the boat, people immediately recognized him.
They scurried about the surrounding country
and began to bring in the sick on mats
to wherever they heard he was.
Whatever villages or towns or countryside he entered,
they laid the sick in the marketplaces
and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak;
and as many as touched it were healed.

When Jesus disembarked and saw the vast crowd,
his heart was moved with pity for them,
for they were like sheep without a shepherd;
and he began to teach them many things.

Herod was the one who had John arrested and bound in prison
on account of Herodias,
the wife of his brother Philip, whom he had married.
John had said to Herod,
“It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.”
Herodias harbored a grudge against him
and wanted to kill him but was unable to do so.
Herod feared John, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man,
and kept him in custody.
When he heard him speak he was very much perplexed,
yet he liked to listen to him.
Herodias had an opportunity one day when Herod, on his birthday,
gave a banquet for his courtiers, his military officers,
and the leading men of Galilee.
His own daughter came in and performed a dance
that delighted Herod and his guests.
The king said to the girl,
“Ask of me whatever you wish and I will grant it to you.”
He even swore many things to her,
“I will grant you whatever you ask of me,
even to half of my kingdom.”

She went out and said to her mother,
“What shall I ask for?”
Her mother replied, “The head of John the Baptist.”
The girl hurried back to the king’s presence and made her request,
“I want you to give me at once on a platter
the head of John the Baptist.”
The king was deeply distressed,
but because of his oaths and the guests
he did not wish to break his word to her.
So he promptly dispatched an executioner
with orders to bring back his head.
He went off and beheaded him in the prison.
He brought in the head on a platter
and gave it to the girl.
The girl in turn gave it to her mother.
When his disciples heard about it,
they came and took his body and laid it in a tomb.


6 de Febreo

Jesús dijo: “Yo estoy con vosotros todos los días, hasta el fin del mundo”. Ayúdanos a recordar siempre, Señor, que Tú estarás a nuestro lado a través de nuestras pruebas y tribulaciones cotidianas. Ayúdanos a tranquilizar nuestras mentes y a nunca dudar de Tu plan final. Amén.


Mc 6, 53-56

En aquel tiempo, Jesús y sus discípulos terminaron la travesía del lago y tocaron tierra en Genesaret.

Apenas bajaron de la barca, la gente los reconoció y de toda aquella región acudían a él, a cualquier parte donde sabían que se encontraba, y le llevaban en camillas a los enfermos.

A dondequiera que llegaba, en los poblados, ciudades o caseríos, la gente le ponía a sus enfermos en la calle y le rogaba que por lo menos los dejara tocar la punta de su manto; y cuantos lo tocaban, quedaban curados.
