Bible Reading and Prayer
for Wednesday 12th 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

Matthew 18.15-20
Reproving Another Who Sins
‘If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of
you are alone. If the member listens to you, you have regained that one. But if you are not
listened to, take one or two others along with you, so that every word may be confirmed by the
evidence of two or three witnesses. If the member refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church;
and if the offender refuses to listen even to the church, let such a one be to you as a Gentile
and a tax-collector. Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and
whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you, if two of you agree
on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two
or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.’

 
 

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)
