Bible Reading and Prayer
for Thursday 30th April 2020

Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today. 

 

During this time when we spend our time in isolation at home;

Whether working alone, with family and loved ones, or continuing as normal if you are a key worker, or supporting our NHS as many within the RAF Family are doing.

I thought I would try and share a Bible reading and a prayer at the start of each weekday morning, during this difficult time.

I hope you may find comfort in the words.

Blessing to you and your family

David Osborn.

 
 

Bible Reading

John 6 verses 44 to 51

No one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent me; and I will raise that person up on the last day. It is written in the prophets, “And they shall all be taught by God.” Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me. Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.’

 
 

Prayer for today

Living God,

your Son made himself known to his disciples

in the breaking of bread:

open the eyes of our faith,

that we may see him in all his redeeming work;

who is alive and reigns, now and for ever.

Amen.
