Daily Prayer & Reading for February 9, 2023

O God, help us to be more compassionate to others and become less judgmental. Guide us to make better decisions so that we can heal the relationships in our lives that are in need of reconciliation. Amen.

Mark 7:24-30

Jesus went to the district of Tyre.
He entered a house and wanted no one to know about it,
but he could not escape notice.
Soon a woman whose daughter had an unclean spirit heard about him.
She came and fell at his feet.
The woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by birth,
and she begged him to drive the demon out of her daughter.
He said to her, “Let the children be fed first.
For it is not right to take the food of the children
and throw it to the dogs.”
She replied and said to him,
“Lord, even the dogs under the table eat the children’s scraps.”
Then he said to her, “For saying this, you may go.
The demon has gone out of your daughter.”
When the woman went home, she found the child lying in bed
and the demon gone.

9 de Febreo

Oh, Dios, ayúdanos a ser más compasivos con los demás y a juzgarlos menos. Guíanos a tomar mejores decisiones para que podamos sanar las relaciones en nuestras vidas que necesitan reconciliación. Amén.

Mc 7, 24-30

En aquel tiempo, Jesús salió de Genesaret y se fue a la región donde se encuentra Tiro. Entró en una casa, pues no quería que nadie se enterara de que estaba ahí, pero no pudo pasar inadvertido. Una mujer, que tenía una niña poseída por un espíritu impuro, se enteró enseguida, fue a buscarlo y se postró a sus pies.

Cuando aquella mujer, una siria de Fenicia y pagana, le rogaba a Jesús que le sacara el demonio a su hija, él le respondió: “Deja que coman primero los hijos. No está bien quitarles el pan a los hijos para echárselo a los perritos”. La mujer le replicó: “Sí, Señor; pero también es cierto que los perritos, debajo de la mesa, comen las migajas que tiran los niños”.

Entonces Jesús le contestó: “Anda, vete; por eso que has dicho, el demonio ha salido ya de tu hija”. Al llegar a su casa, la mujer encontró a su hija recostada en la cama, y ya el demonio había salido de ella.
