This is the fourth week of Advent in the Church Calendar.
Our general order comes from the Book of Common Prayer (1979) Daily Office and Scripture readings from the Revised Common Lectionary. We’ll sing “Of the Father’s Love Begotten” by Aurelius Clemens Prudentius throughout today’s time of prayer. We’ll read Luke 1:46-55 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is Luke 1:39-45 . 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.
