Prayer for the Day – Wednesday 29 April

Living God,
your Son made himself known to his disciples
in the breaking of bread:
open the eyes of our faith,
that we may see him in all his redeeming work;
who is alive and reigns, now and for ever.  Amen

John 6.35–40

35 Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. 36But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; 38for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. 39And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. 40This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.’

from Psalm 34
   I will bless the Lord at all times;
   his praise shall ever be in my mouth.
   My soul shall glory in the Lord;︎
   let the humble hear and be glad.
   O magnify the Lord with me;
   let us exalt his name together.
   I sought the Lord and he answered me
   and delivered me from all my fears.
