Bible Reading and Prayer
for Saturday 23rd May 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
John 16 verses 23 to 28
Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete. ‘I have said these things to you in figures of speech. The hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures, but will tell you plainly of the Father. On that day you will ask in my name. I do not say to you that I will ask the Father on your behalf; for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. I came from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and am going to the Father.’
Prayer for today
O God the King of glory you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven, we beseech you, leave us not comfortless but send your Holy Spirit to strengthen us and exalt us to the place where our Saviour Christ is gone before, who is alive and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
