Daily Prayer & Reading January 11
January 11, 2019
Lord God, it is with Your patient guidance that I have made it to where I am today. Although my goals and plans don’t always turn out the way I expect or plan, I know that You are always by my side, encouraging me to continue on my life’s path. Thank You for being present in my ever-changing life. Amen.
It happened that there was a man full of leprosy in one of the towns where Jesus was;
and when he saw Jesus,
he fell prostrate, pleaded with him, and said,
“Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.”
Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him, and said,
“I do will it. Be made clean.”
And the leprosy left him immediately.
Then he ordered him not to tell anyone, but
“Go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing
what Moses prescribed; that will be proof for them.”
The report about him spread all the more,
and great crowds assembled to listen to him
and to be cured of their ailments,
but he would withdraw to deserted places to pray.
