It’s The Second Wednesday in Lent in the Church Calendar. March 8, 2023.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Praying today for Emily in Mobile, Alabama, USA.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “Day Over Night” by me. We’ll read Psalm 72 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is John 5:1-18 . 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.
If you have a prayer request please submit it here. Sign up here for the email list.

Collect of the Day – Second Sunday in Lent, Rite Two – O God, whose glory it is always to have mercy: Be gracious to all who have gone astray from your ways, and bring them again with penitent hearts and steadfast faith to embrace and hold fast the unchangeable truth of your Word, Jesus Christ your Son; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
