Join me, Ben Ward, as we pray, sing and worship together. We’ll read a Psalm and Scripture passage from the Daily Office in the Book of Common Prayer (1979). We’ll also say the Apostles’ Creed and Lord’s Prayer as we pray for ourselves and others and give thanks to Jesus. Every week from Atlanta, Georgia.

He Knows the Way – Morning Prayer and Worship Morning Prayer and Worship

Thanks for praying and worshiping with me today. As always, our Scripture readings and general order come from the Book of Common Prayer (1979) Daily Office. In the Church calendar, it is Ordinary Time, Proper 25. We’ll begin with a sung version of the opening sentences (I was glad when they said to me…). After a prayer of confession, we’ll read Psalm 1 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is Matthew 22:34-46. After the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Collect of the Day, we’ll sing, “O, for a Thousand Tongues” by Charles Wesley. Then we’ll enter a time of guided prayer.
