Bible: Mark 1:29-39; 3:12
Healings at Simon’s House
1:29 Now 1 as soon as they left the synagogue, 2 they entered Simon and Andrew’s house, with James and John. 1:30 Simon’s mother-in-law was lying down, sick with a fever, so 3 they spoke to Jesus 4 at once about her. 1:31 He came and raised her up by gently taking her hand. Then the fever left her and she began to serve 5 them. 1:32 When it was evening, after sunset, they brought to him all who were sick and demon-possessed. 1:33 The whole town gathered by the door. 1:34 So 6 he healed many who were sick with various diseases and drove out many demons. 7 But 8 he would not permit the demons to speak, 9 because they knew him. 10
Praying and Preaching
1:35 Then 11 Jesus 12 got up early in the morning when it was still very dark, departed, and went out to a deserted place, and there he spent time in prayer. 13 1:36 Simon and his companions searched for him. 1:37 When they found him, they said, “Everyone is looking for you.” 1:38 He replied, 14 “Let us go elsewhere, into the surrounding villages, so that I can preach there too. For that is what I came out here to do.” 15 1:39 So 16 he went into all of Galilee preaching in their synagogues 17 and casting out demons.
