Bible Reading and Prayer
for Tuesday 2nd June 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
Then they sent to him some Pharisees and some Herodians to trap him in what he said. And
they came and said to him, ‘Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and show deference to no
one; for you do not regard people with partiality, but teach the way of God in accordance with
truth. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not? Should we pay them, or should we not?’
But knowing their hypocrisy, he said to them, ‘Why are you putting me to the test? Bring me a
denarius and let me see it.’ And they brought one. Then he said to them, ‘Whose head is this,
and whose title?’ They answered, ‘The emperor’s.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Give to the emperor the
things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.’ And they were utterly
amazed at him.
Prayer for today
Holy Spirit, sent by the Father, ignite in us your holy fire; strengthen your children with the gift of

Christ our Lord. Amen
