Bible Reading and Prayer
for Tuesday 4th 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.


Bible Reading

John 1.43-51
Jesus Calls Philip and Nathanael
The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, ‘Follow me.’ Now
Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to
him, ‘We have found him about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus son
of Joseph from Nazareth.’ Nathanael said to him, ‘Can anything good come out of Nazareth?’
Philip said to him, ‘Come and see.’ When Jesus saw Nathanael coming towards him, he said of
him, ‘Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!’ Nathanael asked him, ‘Where did you
come to know me?’ Jesus answered, ‘I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.’
Nathanael replied, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!’ Jesus answered,
‘Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things
than these.’ And he said to him, ‘Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the
angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.’

Prayer for today

Lighten our darkness, Lord, we pray, and in your great mercy defend us from all perils and
dangers of this night, for the love of your only Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
