Matthew 12:14-15 (New International Version)
But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus. Aware of this, Jesus withdrew from that place. Many followed him, and he healed all their sick.
How many ways have we in the Epsicopal Church plotted to kill You? How many times have we not given You first place in our lives or disregarded Your words? Please bring to our minds those moments You wish us to ask for forgiveness. Teach us how to withdraw from that place of separation from You and follow You. Heal our infirmities, dear Lord. Amen.
