Bible reading and Prayer Friday 31st July


Bible Reading and Prayer
for Friday 31st July 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 13.54-end
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.
