Bible reading & Prayer
for Tuesday 14th April

Welcome to our Tuesday morning Bible reading and Prayer to share together

During this time when we spend our time in isolation at home;

Whether working at home with family and loved ones, or continuing as normal if you are a key worker, or supporting our NHS as many within the RAF Family are doing.

I thought I would try and share a Bible reading and a prayer at the start of each weekday morning, during this difficult time.

I hope you may find comfort and peace in the words.

Blessing to you and your family

David Osborn.

Bible Reading

Psalm 33 verses 1 to 5

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous. Praise befits the upright.

Praise the Lord with the lyre; make melody to him with the harp of ten strings.

Sing to him a new song; play skilfully on the strings, with loud shouts.



For the word of the Lord is upright,

and all his work is done in faithfulness.

He loves righteousness and justice;

the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.
