Bible Reading and Prayer
for Saturday 5th September 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
One sabbath while Jesus was going through the cornfields, his disciples plucked some heads of
grain, rubbed them in their hands, and ate them. But some of the Pharisees said, ‘Why are you
doing what is not lawful on the sabbath?’ Jesus answered, ‘Have you not read what David did
when he and his companions were hungry? He entered the house of God and took and ate the
bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and gave some to his
companions?’ Then he said to them, ‘The Son of Man is lord of the sabbath.’
Prayer for today
Come, my Light, and illumine my darkness.
Come, my Life, and revive me from death.
Come, my Physician, and heal my wounds.
Come, Flame of divine love, and burn up the thorns of my sins,
kindling my heart with the flame of your love.
Come, my King, sit upon the throne of my heart and reign there,
for you alone are my King and my Lord. Amen.
Dimitri of Rostov (1709)
