My prayer is that I will grow closer to Christ through my reflections.

After making the crossing to the other side of the sea, Jesus and his disciples came to land at Gennesaret and tied up there. As they were leaving the boat, people immediately recognized him. They scurried about the surrounding country and began to bring in the sick on mats to wherever they heard he was. Whatever villages or towns or countryside he entered, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak;and as many as touched it were healed.
Mk 6:53-56

Jesus there was no rest for You. Everywhere You went the people followed for their own benefits. Today we do the same. Yet, You taught us to persevere in prayer. Please help me to pray for the right things. Not just for benefits for myself but for the benefit of others, the building up of Your kingdom and that Your will might be fulfilled. I believe in You, help my unbelief. I love You Lord, help my unloving.
