Third Week After Epiphany, Wednesday, January 26, 2022
Jesus left the synagogue and went to the home of Simon. Simon’s mother-in-law was sick with a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her. He came to her side and commanded the fever to leave. It left her, and immediately she got up and began serving them.
When the sun went down, the people brought those who were sick to Jesus. Putting his hands on each sick person, he healed every one of them. Demons came out of many people, shouting, “You are the Son of God.” But Jesus commanded the demons and would not allow them to speak, because they knew Jesus was the Christ.
At daybreak, Jesus went to a lonely place, but the people looked for him. When they found him, they tried to keep him from leaving. But Jesus said to them, “I must preach about God’s kingdom to other towns, too. This is why I was sent.”
Then he kept on preaching in the synagogues of Judea.

Loving Divine Family,
We come to your sacred prayer space seeking your healing. We feel you draw near to us. Your touch is peaceful and instantly calms our fears, aches, and worries. You are our Great Healer, O Merciful One. At your command all diseases and anxieties yield to you.
God of rest, thank you for the gifts of solitude and silence so we can rest and receive your love and to hear that we are your beloved. Thank you, Jesus, our redeemer, for showing us how to spend time with Abba Father and the Holy Spirit who draw us to focus on God, instead of the accolades of the world.
I feel your healing touch today, Great Physician, and thank you for…
As we feel your healing and see more clearly the path you have set before us, may we never take for granted your mercies and blessings. We praise you for your wisdom and almighty gentleness and power.
With joy we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
