Bible Reading and Prayer
for Monday 20th July 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
The Sign of Jonah
Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to him, ‘Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.’
But he answered them, ‘An evil and adulterous generation asks for a sign, but no sign will be given
to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was for three days and three nights in
the belly of the sea monster, so for three days and three nights the Son of Man will be in the heart
of the earth. The people of Nineveh will rise up at the judgement with this generation and condemn
it, because they repented at the proclamation of Jonah, and see, something greater than Jonah is
here! The queen of the South will rise up at the judgement with this generation and condemn it,
because she came from the ends of the earth to listen to the wisdom of Solomon, and see,
something greater than Solomon is here!
Prayer for today
Give us honest hearts, O God,
and send your kindly Spirit
to help us confess our sins
and bring us the peace of your forgiveness;
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
