Bible Reading and Prayer
for Friday 31st July 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
The Rejection of Jesus at Nazareth
He came to his home town and began to teach the people in their synagogue, so that they were
astounded and said, ‘Where did this man get this wisdom and these deeds of power? Is not this
the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph
and Simon and Judas? And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all this?’
And they took offence at him. But Jesus said to them, ‘Prophets are not without honour except in
their own country and in their own house.’ And he did not do many deeds of power there, because
of their unbelief.
Prayer for today
Almighty Lord and everlasting God,
we ask you to direct, sanctify and govern both our hearts and bodies
in the ways of your laws and the works of your commandments;
that through your most mighty protection, both here and ever,
we may be preserved in body and soul;
through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
