Celebrating Saint Philip and Saint James, Apostles in the Church Calendar. May 1, 2023.
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. Singing “The Steadfast Love” by Edith McNeill and “Worthy You Are Worthy” by Don Moen with a prayer of confession. We’ll read Psalm 119:33-40 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is John 14:6-14 . 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.
Saint Philip and Saint James, Rite Two – Almighty God, who gave to your apostles Philip and James grace and strength to bear witness to the truth: Grant that we, being mindful of their victory of faith, may glorify in life and death the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
