Bible reading and Prayer Friday 26th June


Bible Reading and Prayer
for Friday 26th June 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

Matthew 8.1-4
Jesus Cleanses a Leper
When Jesus had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him; and there was a
leper who came to him and knelt before him, saying, ‘Lord, if you choose, you can make me
clean.’ He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, ‘I do choose. Be made clean!’
Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. Then Jesus said to him, ‘See that you say nothing to
anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a
testimony to them.’

Prayer for today

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, set your passion, cross and death between your judgement and our souls, now and in the hour of our death. Grant mercy and grace to the living,
rest to the departed, to your Church peace and concord and to us sinners forgiveness, and
everlasting life and glory; for, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, you are alive and reign, God,
now and for ever. Amen.
