Bible Reading and Prayer
for Tuesday 12th May 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

church, with prayer and fasting they entrusted them to the Lord in whom they had come to
Then they passed through Pisidia and came to Pamphylia. When they had spoken the word in
Perga, they went down to Attalia. From there they sailed back to Antioch, where they had been
commended to the grace of God for the work that they had completed. When they arrived, they
called the church together and related all that God had done with them, and how he had opened
a door of faith for the Gentiles. And they stayed there with the disciples for some time.
Prayer for today
God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
