Mark 1:14-18

Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1:14-15)
      Holy Spirit, help us respond to Jesus’ message:
            “The time IS fulfilled, and
            The kingdom of God IS at hand, and
            We should REPENT and BELIEVE the gospel.”
      Please help each of us respond to his message.

And as he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” (Mark 1:16-17)
      Holy Spirit, help us FOLLOW Jesus.

      Jesus, MAKE US fishers of men.

They immediately left their nets and followed him. (Mark 1:18 )
      Father, so fill us with your Holy Spirit and with love toward Jesus that we will be disciples who IMMEDIATELY respond to his call. Thank you.

      Holy Spirit, give us a sense of urgency to respond to Jesus’ call and move out of the pews and into our communities with the gospel message.

      Sometimes words suddenly and unexpectedly catch me off guard. I could be reading the bible, and something I have read a thousand times, makes new sense read in a different light. I saw a quote the other day, “Have you prayed about it as much as you have talked about it?” and the light went on… Stop talking, start praying. To quote a modern phrase, “Hello.”
