Pleasures Forevermore - Morning Prayer for the First Friday of Advent

It’s the First Friday of Advent in the Church Calendar

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 a song I wrote with Stephanie Osorio, “More Than Enough.” We’ll then offer a Prayer of Confession. We’ll read Psalms 16 and 17 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Scripture Lesson is Luke 20:41-21:4 . 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.

If you have a prayer request please submit it here. Sign up here for the email list.

Collect of the Day
First Sunday of Advent, Rite Two
Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
