Prayer for Today
                         Friday 31st July 2020
Bless the Lord, O my soul, Worship His Holy name.
Sing like never before, I’ll worship your Holy name.
The sun comes up, It’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing your song again
Whatever may pass, whatever lies before me
Let me be singing, when the evening comes.
You’re rich in love, You’re slow to anger
Your name is great, Your heart is kind
For all your goodness, I’ll keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.
                     And on that day
                     When my strength is failing
                     The end draws near
                     And my time has come
                     Still my soul will
                     Sing your praise unending
                     Ten thousand years
                     And then for evermore.
                     For evermore
                     Alleluia. Alleluia. Amen.

Today the church celebrates Joseph of Aramathea. Joseph is mentioned in all 4 gospels when he asks Pilate for the body of Jesus and arranges a decent burial for him. By all accounts a rich man and a member of the Sanhedrin, Joseph was however a secret follower of Jesus. He is remembered for his steadfast love for Jesus at some risk to himself. Joseph has become the stuff of legend and is associated with possible visits to Cornwall and particularly Glastonbury in Somerset following the publication of the hymn “Jerusalem” by William Blake.
