Daily Lenten Devotion Wednesday, March 12

Wednesday, March 12, 2014 – Psalm 27; Genesis 37:25-36; 1 Corinthians 2:1-13 and Mark 1:29-45

Mark 1:29-45 – 35 In the morning, while it was still very dark, he (Jesus) got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed.

I find this to be a very helpful reminder. It was important to Jesus that he go off and pray. He’d step away early in the morning and simply pray. If it was good enough for Jesus, it should be good enough for me and you.

So today I simply invite you to take some time to pray. We all have our lists of who we need to pray for. I’d appreciate it if you’d include a friend of mind and Phyllis’ who is having complications from hip replacement surgery. He has had complication, after complication and now still another. His first name is Dennis or Denny. He’s up at the University of Missouri Medical Center. He appreciates the prayers. Yesterday the pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Columbia went by to see Denny and his wife. They greatly appreciated us calling to have him go by.

Are there prayer concern you have that you’d like me to put on my prayer list? Just send them my way.

Part of prayer is our praying unto God yet another is us stopping long enough to listen for what God is saying unto us. So, take some time to be silent as well as to speak.

Psalm 27 – 1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid? …

O God, today hear our prayers and may we hear your word unto us. ……… Amen.
