Morning Prayer

Prayer, Bible Reading and Devotional Thoughts

Fifth Sunday in Lent

Usage Note:

The Collect for the First Day in Lent (Ash Wednesday) may be used following the weekly Collect throughout Lent.


Governed by God; preserved by God.

Design for Worship:

This week's Design for Worship teaches us that Christ, our High Priest, shed His own blood for our benefit, that he was despised by His own people, which led to His sacrificial death, and that through this all we see him as the great governor of our body and soul.

Epistle Lesson:

Hebrews 9: 11-15

Gospel Lesson:

John 8: 46-59

Revised Collect:

Hear our pray, Almighty God, look on Your people in mercy; that Your great goodness may always govern and preserve us in both our body and soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Original Collect:

We beseech Thee, Almighty God, mercifully to look upon thy people; that by thy great goodness they may be governed and preserved evermore, both in body and soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
