Prayer diary: Thursday 19th November 2015 Today's Bible reading: 2 Timothy 4: 1-2 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction.
