We’re celebrating John and Charles Wesley in the Church Calendar. March 3, 2023.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Praying today for Tatiana in England.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “O For a Thousand Tongues” by Charles Wesley and Lowell Mason. We’ll read Psalm 98:1-4 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is Luke 9:2-6 . We’ll say the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Collect of the Day. We’ll then have a time of prompted prayer.
Collect of the Day – John and Charles Wesley, Priests, 1791, 1788, Rite Two – Lord God, you inspired your servants John and Charles Wesley with burning zeal for the sanctification of souls, and endowed them with eloquence in speech and song: Kindle in your Church, we entreat you, such fervor, that those whose faith has cooled may be warmed, and those who have not known Christ may turn to him and be saved; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
