    Thanks for praying and worshiping with me today. As always, our Scripture readings and general order come from the Book of Common Prayer (1979) Daily Office. In the Church calendar, it is Ordinary Time, Proper 25. We’ll begin with a sung version of the opening sentences (I was glad when they said to me…). After a prayer of confession, we’ll read Psalm 1 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is Matthew 22:34-46. After the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Collect of the Day, we’ll sing, “O, for a Thousand Tongues” by Charles Wesley. Then we’ll enter a time of guided prayer.

Perfect way to focus

I am easily distracted when praying on my own and Morning Prayer helps me stay focused and invites me to worship, too. I love that Ben gives times for us to pray and that he plays his guitar throughout. It’s the perfect way for me to start my day. Also works great in the afternoon when I want to reconnect with God.
