It’s The Fifth Wednesday in Lent in the Church Calendar. March 29, 2023.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Praying today for people of Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever” by Martin Smith. We’ll read Psalm 119:145-176 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is John 10:1-18 . 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.

Collect of the Day – Fifth Sunday in Lent, Rite Two – Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
