Mark 1: 29-39 — The Cure of Simon’s Mother-In-Law
29 On leaving the synagogue [Jesus] entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John. 30 Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever. They immediately told him about her. 31 He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up. Then the fever left her and she waited on them.
32 When it was evening, after sunset, they brought him all who were ill or possessed by demons. 33 The whole town was gathered at the door. 34 He cured many who were sick with various diseases, and he drove out many demons, not permitting them to speak because they knew him.
35 Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off to deserted place, where he prayed. 36 Simon and those who were with him pursued him 37 and on finding him said, “Everyone is looking for you.” 38 He told them, “Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach there also. For this purpose have I come.” 39 So he he went into their synagogues, preaching and driving out demons throughout the whole of Galilee.
In our daily lives, let us not forget to talk to Jesus, to the Lord even how busy and tired we are. As mentioned above, in the Gospel, Jesus went to where He could talk and say prayer to the Lord even how long His day was and let us not forget the He did it during the dawn. This is also something we need to reflect to also that in the very first breathe we could do every day, let us give praises, thanks and say prayer to the Lord.
