Celebrating the life of Saint James the Apostle in the Church Calendar. July 25, 2023.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “O Taste and See” by Brian and Jenn Johnson and we’ll include a prayer of confession. We’ll read Psalm 7:1-10 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Scripture lesson is Acts 11:27-12:3 . 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.
Thank you for supporting Morning Prayer. You can go here to find out more.
Saint James – O gracious God, we remember before you today your servant and apostle James, first among the Twelve to suffer martyrdom for the Name of Jesus Christ; and we pray that you will pour out upon the leaders of your Church that spirit of self-denying service by which alone they may have true authority among your people; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
