Bible Reading and Prayer
for Friday 4th September 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
Then they said to him, ‘John’s disciples, like the disciples of the Pharisees, frequently fast and
pray, but your disciples eat and drink.’ Jesus said to them, ‘You cannot make wedding-guests fast
while the bridegroom is with them, can you? The days will come when the bridegroom will be
taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days.’ He also told them a parable: ‘No one
tears a piece from a new garment and sews it on an old garment; otherwise the new will be torn,
and the piece from the new will not match the old. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins;
otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. But
new wine must be put into fresh wineskins. And no one after drinking old wine desires new wine,
but says, “The old is good.” ’

Prayer for today
May the cross of the Son of God,
which is mightier than all the hosts of Satan,
and more glorious than all the hosts of heaven,
abide with me in my going out and my coming in.
By day and by night, at morning and at evening,
at all times and in all places may it protect and defend me.
From the wrath of evildoers, from the assaults of evil spirits,
from foes visible and invisible, from the snares of the devil,
from all passions that beguile the soul and body:
may it guard, protect and deliver me.
