Our Morning Offering – 5 December – Tuesday of the First Week of Advent

An Advent Prayer
From the Book of Common Prayer

Almighty God,
give us grace,
that we may cast away
the works of darkness
and put upon us,
the armour of light,
now in the time of this mortal life,
in which Your Son, Jesus Christ,
came to visit us in great humility.
That in the last day when He shall come again
in His glorious majesty
to judge both the living and the dead,
we may rise to the life immortal,
through Him who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit,
now and forever, amen.an advent prayer - 5 dec 2017

Our Morning Offering – 13 December

Lord Jesus Christ,
by Your patience in suffering
You made holy earthly pain
and gave us the example
of obedience to Your Father’s will:
Be near me
in the trials of my day
and in time of weakness;
sustain me by Your grace,
that my strength and courage
may not fail;
bless me according to Your will;
and help me always to believe
that what happens to me here
is of little account
if You hold me in eternal life,
my Lord and my God. Amen.
