Bible Reading and Prayer
for Monday 10th August 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

Laurence, Deacon at Rome, Martyr, 258
Romans 8.35-end
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or
famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written,
‘For your sake we are being killed all day long;
we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered.’
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am
convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to

come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to
separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Prayer for today

Almighty God, who made Laurence a loving servant of your people and a wise steward of the
treasures of your Church: fire us with his example to love as he loved and to walk in the way
that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with
you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
