Jesus raises Simon's Mother in Law

Jesus performed numerous miracles, partly to help strengthen our faith.

Once Jesus visited the home of Simon whose mother-in-law was sick with a fever. Jesus, “Raised her up by gently taking her hand and the fever left her”. (Mark 1:31)

Thought

It is through daily prayer and good works that our faith grows stronger, just as it was for the Apostles.

Lord, Jesus, I come before you, just as I am.
I repent of my sins, forgive me.

I give you my entire self.
I invite you into my life, Jesus.
I accept you as my Lord and Saviour.

strengthen me in body, soul and spirit.
Cover me with your precious blood,
and fill me with your Holy Spirit,
I praise you, Jesus. I thank you, Jesus.
