It’s the First Wednesday of Advent in the Church Calendar
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
We are celebrating Andrew the Apostle today.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “O Taste and See” by Brian Johnson and Jenn Johnson. We’ll then offer a Prayer of Confession. We’ll read Psalm 19:1-6 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Scripture Lesson is Matthew 4:18-22 . 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
Saint Andrew, Rite Two
Almighty God, who gave such grace to your apostle Andrew that he readily obeyed the call of your Son Jesus Christ, and brought his brother with him: Give us, who are called by your Holy Word, grace to follow him without delay, and to bring those near to us into his gracious presence; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
