Bible reading and Prayer Wednesday 2nd September


Bible Reading and Prayer
for Wednesday 2nd September 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

Luke 4.38-end
After leaving the synagogue he entered Simon’s house. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering
from a high fever, and they asked him about her. Then he stood over her and rebuked the fever,
and it left her. Immediately she got up and began to serve them.
As the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various kinds of diseases
brought them to him; and he laid his hands on each of them and cured them. Demons also came
out of many, shouting, ‘You are the Son of God!’ But he rebuked them and would not allow them to
speak, because they knew that he was the Messiah.
At daybreak he departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowds were looking for him;
and when they reached him, they wanted to prevent him from leaving them. But he said to them, ‘I
must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this
purpose.’ So he continued proclaiming the message in the synagogues of Judea.

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.
