Todays Reading Mk 9:14-29

Mk 9:14-29


Prayer is a road to change and brings us closer to God.  It shows us that with work, devotion and love, we can change the world around us and ourselves  I know thru the paths I have taken in the past, my situation never improved, or if they did it, they were temporally improved.  But once I surrender to our Lord, and offer up myself in prayer, I found that  the darkness in my soul and heart had dis pursed, for the light of our Lord warmed it.  More than any drug, person, or earthly possessions ever could.  For it showed me true love.  For what I thought was love was not.  Where I thought there were was forgiveness, there was not.  Until I totally surrender myself and added daily prayers in my life, I was unchanged.  

The unclean spirit in this reading could not be driven out by the apostles.  Why they asked the Lord.  Our Teacher responded by saying “This kind can only come out through prayer.”  Thru prayer we show our full faith.  Humbly asking and giving the glory to God instead of commanding out the change in our life.  As Christ said to his apostles that failed to drive out the unclean spirit in the man in today’s reading, “‘If you can!’ Everything is possible to one who has faith.”.  For we can drive out the darkness in our hearts and souls thru prayer.  In prayer we humble ourselves.  In surrendering to our Lord we humble ourselves and thru his glory we can change our lives and those of our fellow brother and sisters.
