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.
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, we are in the season of Lent. We’ll sing “Great is Thy Faithfulness” by Thomas Chisholm throughout today’s time of prayer. We’ll read Psalm 22:22-30 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Lesson is Mark 8:31-38. We’ll say the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Collect of the Day. Today, our times of prompted prayer are sprinkled throughout.

Just wanted to let you all know that I’m taking short break in the podcast. Hopefully be back soon. Work ramped up last week with several projects!
Do know that I’m continuing to pray the Daily Office and follow the reading plans. If you’d like to join me on YouVersion click here. You have to do a small hack to get it to sync up with the correct day…
To reset the start date for your plan or to sync your plan with others:
Open the plan you’d like to reset
Determine which day (not the date but the day of the plan) you’d like to be on – this example uses day 352 as the day you’d like to be on
Select day 351 and mark all of the passages for that day as read
Check to make sure that none of the days after day 351 are marked as read
Select day 352 to make it the active day – this will be your new ‘Today’
Select the three dots icon in the upper right
Select Catch Me Up
Today (10-10-18) is Day 352 😊.
Let me know if you have any problems!! Thanks as always for praying with me and I look forward to resuming the podcasts soon!
Talking things over, they went on into the house, where Cornelius introduced Peter to everyone who had come. Peter addressed them, “You know, I’m sure that this is highly irregular. Jews just don’t do this—visit and relax with people of another race. But God has just shown me that no race is better than any other. So the minute I was sent for, I came, no questions asked. But now I’d like to know why you sent for me.”
Jesus came back at them, “Don’t crowd me. This isn’t my time. It’s your time—it’s always your time; you have nothing to lose. The world has nothing against you, but it’s up in arms against me. It’s against me because I expose the evil behind its pretensions. You go ahead, go up to the Feast. Don’t wait for me. I’m not ready. It’s not the right time for me.”
