It’s The First Thursday in Lent in the Church Calendar. March 2, 2023.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Praying today for Manuel Montez in Houston, Texas, USA.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “Always Amazing” by me. We’ll read Psalm 50 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is John 3:16-21 . 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 – First Sunday in Lent, Rite Two – Almighty God, whose blessed Son was led by the Spirit to be tempted by Satan: Come quickly to help us who are assaulted by many temptations; and, as you know the weaknesses of each of us, let each one find you mighty to save; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
