Bible Reading and Prayer
for Tuesday 11th August 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
Clare of Assisi, Founder of the Minoresses (Poor Clares), 1253
Song of Solomon 8.6-7
Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm;
for love is strong as death,
passion fierce as the grave.
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
a raging flame.
Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can floods drown it.
If one offered for love
all the wealth of one’s house,
it would be utterly scorned.
Prayer for today
God of peace, who in the poverty of the blessed Clare gave us a clear light to shine in the
darkness of this world: give us grace so to follow in her footsteps that we may, at the last,
rejoice with her in your eternal glory; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and
reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
