It’s Wednesday of Ordinary Time, Proper 15 in the Church Calendar. August 23, 2023.
Praying today for those disillusioned by politics.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing a song I wrote called “When I’m Lost” and we’ll include a prayer of confession. We’ll read Psalm 119:145-176 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Scripture lesson is Acts 23:23-35 . 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.
Morning Prayer and Worship is a production of Steady Stream Ministries, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Thank you for giving to support this ministry. You can go here to find out more.
Proper 15 – Almighty God, you have given your only Son to be for us a sacrifice for sin, and also an example of godly life: Give us grace to receive thankfully the fruits of his redeeming work, and to follow daily in the blessed steps of his most holy life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
