10th Sunday After Trinity


Lord of heaven and earth, as Jesus taught his disciples to be

persistent in prayer, give us patience and courage never to

lose hope, but always to bring our prayers before you;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Kings 19. 4-8

4But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness,

and came and sat down under a solitary broom tree. He

asked that he might die: ‘It is enough; now, O Lord, take

away my life, for I am no better than my ancestors.’ 5Then

he lay down under the broom tree and fell asleep. Suddenly

an angel touched him and said to him, ‘Get up and eat.’ 6He

looked, and there at his head was a cake baked on hot

stones, and a jar of water. He ate and drank, and lay down

again. 7The angel of the Lord came a second time, touched

him, and said, ‘Get up and eat, otherwise the journey will be

too much for you.’ 8He got up, and ate and drank; then he

went in the strength of that food for forty days and forty

nights to Horeb the mount of God.

Ephesians 4.25 – 5.2

25So then, putting away falsehood, let all of us speak the

truth to our neighbours, for we are members of one

another. 26Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go

down on your anger, 27and do not make room for the devil.

28Thieves must give up stealing; rather let them labour and

work honestly with their own hands, so as to have

something to share with the needy. 29Let no evil talk come

out of your mouths, but only what is useful for building up,

as there is need, so that your words may give grace to those

who hear. 30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with

which you were marked with a seal for the day of

redemption. 31Put away from you all bitterness and wrath

and anger and wrangling and slander, together with all

malice, 32and be kind to one another, tender-hearted,

forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.

51Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children, 2and

live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a

fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

John 6. 35, 41-51

35Jesus 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. 41Then the Jews began to complain about

him because he said, ‘I am the bread that came down from

heaven.’ 42They were saying, ‘Is not this Jesus, the son of

Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he

now say, “I have come down from heaven”?’ 43Jesus

answered them, ‘Do not complain among yourselves. 44No

one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent

me; and I will raise that person up on the last day. 45It is

written in the prophets, “And they shall all be taught by

God.” Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father

comes to me. 46Not that anyone has seen the Father except

the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. 47Very

truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life. 48I am the

bread of life. 49Your ancestors ate the manna in the

wilderness, and they died. 50This is the bread that comes

down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. 51I

am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever

eats of this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I will

give for the life of the world is my flesh.’
