It’s the Third Thursday 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 “Great Are You Lord” by David Leonard, Jason Ingram, and Leslie Jordan. We’ll then offer a Prayer of Confession. We’ll read Psalm 50 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Scripture Lesson is Matthew 3:1-12 . 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
Third Sunday of Advent, Rite Two
Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
