Bible Reading and Prayer
for Monday 3rd 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.

‘Come.’ So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came towards Jesus.
But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out,
‘Lord, save me!’ Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, ‘You of
little faith, why did you doubt?’ When they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the
boat worshipped him, saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God.’
When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret. After the people of that place
recognized him, they sent word throughout the region and brought all who were sick to him, and
begged him that they might touch even the fringe of his cloak; and all who touched it were
