Mark 1:37 (seeking Jesus)

14 Jan Mark 1:37 (seeking Jesus)

Welcome God every morning before your work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which has snippets from Living Faith ( All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

Everyone is looking for you. Mark 1:37

Living Faith snippets: “The sick came to Jesus in great numbers. No doubt more than a few of them were desperate for a cure and had nowhere else to turn. He gives generously to those who come to Him in need. But wouldn’t it be good, at times, to seek out Jesus not because we want something, but because He is a friend? They might become some of the most satisfying moments of our lives.” by Msgr. Stephen J. Rossetti

* Let’s never forget the horrific reality of abortion (click here for images).
* Let’s pray for courage to communicate the ProLife message through Christ to those around us (John 14:6)…rebuilding a Culture of Life (Matt 5:16).
* NEW: I read in an Air Force regulation that members “usually warrant approval” for a humanitarian reassignment with the death of a family member…”including miscarriages of 20 weeks or more gestation.”

Our Prayers: Prayer to End Abortion, chastity, our enemies, our troops, natural disasters, depression/ despair, prisoners, ProLife politicians, loss of loved ones, lack of faith, illnesses/injuries, Mike Castle (eye infection), Joe Levisky (medical issues), Dan Castle (for alcoholics), Peace in the Middle East (Iraq, Gaza), Lynn Bishara (Aunt Mary battling cancer), Kay Castle (Bill Lund family), Papa Joe Castle (bleeding in brain), Jason Peters (health of son JP), Joe Castle (medical issues)
* Praise: Steve and Tina Castle are having another girl (found out Monday).
* NEW: Lutz Ettrich (his girlfriend’s Dad had a stroke), Joe Hourigan (end contraception, Pres-elect Obama), Rob Ouellette (Mike and Bill)

Faith Quote: Joe Hourigan shared this one. “For some, suffering is the crucible where real faith is born, for others suffering is where believing ends.” Pope John Paul II

Through Christ for ProLife,
Phil 4:13
* Today’s Bible readings at Reflection on readings at
* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, thereby changing us & helping others. Wayne Watson lyrics, “When God’s people pray, there is hope reborn, there is sin forgiven, and miracles you can’t explain await!” ‘If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead & see Him.’
* Fasting: Let’s fast from things that takes our eyes off Jesus (selfishness, bitterness, being so critical, impatience, judgment, gossip, excessive video games, etc) and take on things that fix our eyes on Jesus (selflessness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, patience, understanding, caring, helping, listening).
* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might lie as you wish’ Blessed Mother Teresa.
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for unbelievers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service.
Let’s joyfully live out the Good News and gladly tell others about it (Mark 16:15)!
