This is The Fifth Thursday After the Epiphany in the Church Calendar. February 9, 2023.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Praying today for Cresta in Singapore and Anonymous in Nigeria.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “They’ll Know We Are Christians By Our Love” by Peter Scholtes. We’ll read Psalm 83 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is Mark 10:17-31 . 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
Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany, Rite Two
Set us free, O God, from the bondage of our sins, and give us the liberty of that abundant life which you have made known to us in your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
