“Master, I Brought You My Son”

We Are Going to Fast and Pray for Our Family on Sunday, March 10th, 2024

Master I brought you my child

On Sunday, March 10, 2024, there will be a “Master, I Brought You My Son” event. The purpose is based on the passage from Mark 9:17, in which a desperate father sought the Lord Jesus to free his son.

He Didn’t Give Up:

Then one of the crowd answered and said, “Master, I brought You my son, who has a mute spirit.  And wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. So I spoke to Your disciples, that they should cast it out, but they could not.” (Mark 9:17-18)

“The father brought his son to Jesus’ disciples, but they could not help him. So he insisted, he didn’t give up. He could have thought this: ‘I already took my son there to the disciples of this Jesus, and they didn’t do anything for him.’ But no, even though Jesus’ disciples could not help him, he went straight to Jesus,” said Bishop Renato Cardoso.

God Knows Your Pain:

He highlights that many of the miracles that the Lord Jesus performed in the Bible occurred through the intercession of a father or mother. He also cites the case of the Canaanite woman and that of Jairus’ daughter.

  • “This shows that God knows the pain of a father and a mother. He knows your pain, but he needs you to express faith, as this father did. God can only work with the raw material of faith. If God doesn’t have faith, He won’t do anything because He needs whoever approaches Him to believe He exists. Without faith, it is impossible to please God, but everything is possible for those who believe. So, we need to express our faith so that Jesus can take action,” he explained.

Purpose of Faith:

On that occasion, the Lord Jesus taught that the secret to overcoming spiritual problems like that of that boy is only through fasting and prayer, which is why the disciples could not cast out that demon.

  • “We are going to fast and pray for our family on Sunday, March 10th. Whichever family member is in trouble, we will offer fasting and prayer on their behalf and present our vow for the family. The vow generates the new creature. When you mark the altar with your faith materialized through your vows, God has to do something”, Bishop guarantees.

Therefore, this Sunday, March 10, 2024, do like these parents and join us in this purpose of faith for your family.
