Mark 1:12-45 . Immediately after his baptism by John the Baptist Jesus was tested in the wilderness for forty days. After the temporary victory over Satan, Jesus began calling his first disciples, and went to Capernaum, starting his ministry. Jesus drove out an evil spirit while teaching in the synagogue. As had become his habit, Jesus healed many and many people started following him, and as always Jesus prayed in a solitary place, but continued to teach and heal many, including a man with leprosy. This is a chapter full of action.

Psalm 23, of David. Probably the most memorized Psalm of them all. Do it, if you can.0
