Bible Reading and Prayer
for Wednesday 26th 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

2 Corinthians 9.6-end
The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows
bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not
reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you
with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may
share abundantly in every good work. As it is written,
‘He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor;
his righteousness endures for ever.’
He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for
sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way for
your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us; for the rendering of
this ministry not only supplies the needs of the saints but also overflows with many
thanksgivings to God. Through the testing of this ministry you glorify God by your obedience to
the confession of the gospel of Christ and by the generosity of your sharing with them and with
all others, while they long for you and pray for you because of the surpassing grace of God that
he has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!

 
 

Prayer for today

O Lord, you have given us your word for a light to shine upon our path. Grant us so to meditate
on that word, and to follow its teaching, that we may find in it the light that shines more and
more until the perfect day; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
