PRAY AND WORK

Devotional for Wednesday March 2, 2022


Morning Mark 1:35-39

Noon Psalm 15

Evening Acts 4:23-33


A certain story tells us that Luther's work was so much that Miconio, his friend, feeling sorry for him, approached him to say: “I can help you more from where I am; I will remain here praying, while you tirelessly persevere in the fight.” Miconio prayed for many days, but the more he prayed, the more he could experience his own guilt. One night, our Savior appeared to him in a dream, and told him "Follow me" and taking him to a high mountain, our Savior pointed towards the rising. Miconio saw a plain that stretched to the far horizon. The vast plain was covered with sheep, many thousands of white sheep. There was only one man, Martin Luther, who tried to shepherd them all. Then the Savior told Miconio to look toward the west. He looked out and saw vast fields of wheat ready for harvest. The only reaper struggling to mow them was almost exhausted; in any case, he persisted in his task. At that moment, Miconio recognized the lonely reaper: it was his good friend, Martin Luther! Upon waking from his sleep, Miconio made a resolution: “The sheep must be grazed, and the fields must be reaped.”

Morning Mark 1:35-39

35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.

36 And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.

37 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.

38 And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.

39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.



Noon Psalm 15

1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.


Evening Acts 4:23-33

23 And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.

24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

25 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?

26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,

28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,

30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

 

Prayer Guide: [México-Puebla] and [Nicaragua-El Empalme De Boaco]


March's challenge: Do everything possible so that your life can be a visible testimony to all men as Christians living in the likeness of Christ. Everyday, praise your Creator. Keep a constant praise on your lips. Listen to Christian praise and worship music with your family. Go to Church, not only to be a spectator, but a worshiper. Worship as you pray, worship as you read the Bible, worship in your illness, always worship.


Annual Bible reading: Joshua 12,13, 14
