This is The Presentation of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Temple in the Church Calendar.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Praying today for Adwoa in Ghana.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “Better is One Day” by Matt Redman. We’ll read Psalm 84 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is Luke 2:22-40 . 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
The Presentation, Rite Two
Almighty and everliving God, we humbly pray that, as your only-begotten Son was this day presented in the temple, so we may be presented to you with pure and clean hearts by Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
