Mark 1:12-15

Though brief when compared with Matthew and Luke, Mark’s account of the beginning of Jesus’ ministry preceded by his temptation in the desert is very direct. Jesus is led by the Spirit into the desert and for 40 days is tested by Satan. With his Father’s protection, he withstands the test and is ready.

We pray God’s protection for all experiencing a time of testing in their lives. May their weakness become their strength, and may they endure until they are healed and whole.
