Bible Reading and Prayer
for Saturday 11th July 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
The Rich Ruler
A certain ruler asked him, ‘Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ Jesus said to him,
‘Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: “You
shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false
witness; Honour your father and mother.” ’ He replied, ‘I have kept all these since my youth.’ When
Jesus heard this, he said to him, ‘There is still one thing lacking. Sell all that you own and
distribute the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.’
Prayer for today, St Benedict of Nursia
Eternal God, who made Benedict a wise master in the school of your service and a guide to many
called into community to follow the rule of Christ; grant that we may put your love before all else
and seek with joy the way of your commandments, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
