Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Acts 4:13-21 & Mark 16:9-15
Holy Spirit of God heal my disbelief …
No wonder the rulers, elders and academics (scribes) of Jerusalem arrested Peter and John just weeks after Jesus’ Ascension into heaven – they had never believed the ‘Good News’ that Christ had proclaimed. But even the disciples engaged disbelief – they did not believe the accounts of Jesus’ resurrection until they saw Him in person. St. Mark tells us, “Jesus upbraided them for their lack of faith and stubbornness because they had not believed.” What disbelief in me needs healing? How is Jesus Christ calling me to believe in Him? Holy Spirit of God, heal my disbelief.
I shall not die, but I shall live and recount the deeds of the Lord. (Psalm 118)
