Bible Reading and Prayer
for Saturday 18th July 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
The Pharisees went out and conspired against him, how to destroy him.
God’s Chosen Servant
When Jesus became aware of this, he departed. Many crowds followed him, and he cured all of
them, and he ordered them not to make him known. This was to fulfil what had been spoken
through the prophet Isaiah:
‘Here is my servant, whom I have chosen,
my beloved, with whom my soul is well pleased.
I will put my Spirit upon him,
and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
He will not wrangle or cry aloud,
nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets.
He will not break a bruised reed
or quench a smouldering wick
until he brings justice to victory.
And in his name the Gentiles will hope.’
Prayer for today
deliver us from a world without justice
and a future without mercy;
in your mercy, establish justice,
and in your justice, remember the mercy revealed to us in Jesus Christ our Lord.
