Bible Reading and Prayer
for Wednesday 20th May 2020


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

Good morning.

Our beautiful church remains closed for the time being, as we all play our part in fighting the invisible enemy of Covid 19.

As we continue to work from home, or on the front line with our brave key workers, I hope our daily prayers and readings from the Bible, bring you hope, some comfort and sustain you during this difficult time.

Our church remains empty, but together, in a virtual world, we give thanks to our Lord and pray for those whose lives have been touched during this time.
Blessings to you and your family.


Bible Reading

John 16 verses 12 to 15

Jesus said, ‘I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.’

Prayer for today

 St Alcuin’s day

God of wisdom, eternal light who shone in the heart of your servant Alcuin revealing to him your power and pity, scatter the darkness of our ignorance, that with all our heart and mind and strength we may seek your face and be brought with all your saints to your heavenly presence, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
