Fifth Sunday Ordinary Time

Psalm 46:1: God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Heavenly Father, we thank you for protecting our life. We thank you for hearing my cries for help and healing. We thank you for guiding our feet into ways that have been a blessing. Please, O God, stay close by as we face the stresses and challenges in our life. Through your Holy Spirit, enable us to grow and be an example to others as we pass through life's storm. In the name of Infant Jesus, we ask this. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 1:29-39)
Jesus' disciples freely brought their problems to him because they found him ready and able to deal with any difficulty, suffering, or sickness which they encountered. When Simon brought Jesus to his house, his mother-in-law was immediately healed because Jesus heard Simon's prayer. Do we allow Jesus to be the Lord and Healer in our life, family, and community? Approach him with eager faith. The mighty works and signs which Jesus did show that the kingdom of God is present in him. These signs show that the Father has sent Jesus the promised Messiah. The coming of God's kingdom means defeat of Satan's kingdom. God's healing supremacy restores us not only to health but to dynamic service and care of others. There is no trouble he does not want to help us with and there is no oppression he can't set us free from. Do we take our difficulty to him with expectant faith that he will help us?
