Morning Prayer Guide - Sunday

The First Sunday after Epiphany: The Baptism of Our Lord Jesus Christ, January 13, 2013
Begin by praying the Collect for Grace and Collect for Purity.
 

Collect for Grace:
Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought us safely to this new day: Preserve us with your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.


Collect for Purity:
Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hidden: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we might perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.


Read: Isaiah 43:1-7; Psalm 29; Acts 8:14-17; and Luke 3:15-17, 21-22

Today is a day of rest and worship.  Allow the readings to guide your thoughts and prayers.
