It’s the Second Monday After the Epiphany in the Church Calendar.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Praying today for Felix in Mobile, Alabama.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “Were You There?” by Frederick Work and John Work. We’ll read Psalm 25 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is Mark 3:7-19a . 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
Martin Luther King, Jr., Civil Rights Leader, 1968, Rite Two
Almighty God, by the hand of Moses your servant you led your people out of slavery, and made them free at last: Grant that your Church, following the example of your prophet Martin Luther King, may resist oppression in the name of your love, and may secure for all your children the blessed liberty of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
