Bible Reading and Prayer
for Wednesday 2nd September 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
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.
