The desires of your heart - Morning Prayer, Thursday, Proper 17

It’s Thursday of Ordinary Time, Proper 17 in the Church Calendar. September 7, 2023.

Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “Humble Thyself In The Sight Of The Lord” by Bob Hudson and we’ll include a prayer of confession. We’ll read Psalm 37:1-18 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Scripture lesson is James 3:13-4:12 . 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.

Proper 17 – Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things: Graft in our hearts the love of your Name; increase in us true religion; nourish us with all goodness; and bring forth in us the fruit of good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
