It’s the first Thursday of Advent in the Church Calendar. December 7, 2023
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “Of the Father’s Love Begotten” by Aurelius Clemens Prudentius and translated by J. M. Neale and H. W. Baker with a prayer of confession. We’ll read Psalm 18:1-20 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Scripture lesson is 2 Peter 3:11-18 . We’ll say the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Collect of the Day followed by a time of spontaneous, prompted prayer.
Morning Prayer and Worship is a production of Steady Stream Ministries, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization.

First Sunday of Advent – Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
