Praying the Bible ~ Mark 4:33-35

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: Mark 4:33-35
Jesus replied to them, “Who are my mother and my brothers?” Looking at those sitting in a circle around him, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.” (Christian Standard Bible)

Father, when you created Adam and Eve, family was the first community you made. You intend for us to be in families, but greater still, you intend for us to be in your family. You give us this grace through Jesus, who was not ashamed to call us his brothers and sisters, and who died to make us such. Thank you for your grace. Thank you for being the good Father. Help us daily to do your will. Amen.
