Day 23 The Sick Healed at Evening Matt 8:16-17, Mark 1:32-34, Luke 4:40-41

Guided reflections:

  1. “When the sun was setting…”  Have you ever noticed that when the evening comes, a cold or flu bug seems to get worse?  Isn’t it just like Jesus to heal in the evening, when folks are anxious and in pain? 
  2. What is your family routine in the evening, as the sun is setting?  What are you doing, watching, how are you acting toward each other?  Maybe you could start a tradition that when the sun begins to set, the family gathers to give to God the concerns of the day, the fears of tomorrow.  Would that bring peace to your home?

Guided Prayer for Day 23:

“ O calming Spirit,  we give you this day – giving thanks for all we accomplished, asking forgiveness for where we missed the mark (list them)… and asking for your peace this night as we prepare for a new day.  Calm our fears about tomorrow (List them)   Amen”
