Verse of the Day

“Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.” Mark 14:9

Today’s Inspiring Story

Born in 1784, Mary Jones was a Welsh girl with a burning desire to have a Bible of her own. At the age of 15, having saved money for 6 years, she walked 26 miles barefoot to buy her own Welsh Bible from Rev. Thomas Charles. Her story inspired the foundation of The British and Foreign Bible Society which enable me to be able to read the Word of God in my own language also.

After coming to Wales, the first holiday I took my family on was to (believe it or not) an old grave, her birthplace and the house and village she spent her life in. Just to salute and pay our tributes to Mary Jones for what she did for me, my family and the world!

May we all be inspired by the story of Mary Jones and her Bible. As we reflect on our history may we find ways of using the inspiration of the past and applying it to today to share the wonderful Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

Prayer

Heavenly Father, we come before you this day to thank you for all the wonderful things you do in our lives and for the lives of others around us by using us as your vessels.

We thank you for the Wales Synod and all its Circuits.

Help us during this time of crisis to set an example for those around us who may be troubled or weary, that they may be inspired to look to you in this tough time and find peace.

Amen.
