Morning Prayer

Prayer, Bible Reading and Devotional Thoughts

Sunday Next Before Lent

Alternate Name:

Quinquagesima Sunday (symbolic for 50 days before Easter)

Subject:

Charity (Love).

Design for Worship:

This week's design teaches us that without Love we cannot please God, whether it is restoring sight to the blind, or giving up your life for another, without love it is nothing.

Epistle Lesson:

1 Corinthians 13: 1-13

Gospel Lesson:

Luke 18: 31-43

Revised Collect:

Lord, You have taught us that everything we do without love is worthless; so, we pray, send Your Holy Spirit, and pour into our hearts the most excellent gift, the gift of love, indeed it is the very bond of peace and all virtues, and those who live without love are like dead men before You. Grant this for Your only Son Jesus Christ's sake.

Original Collect:

O Lord, who has taught us that all our doings without love are nothing worth; Send thy Holy Ghost, and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love, the very bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whosoever liveth is counted dead before thee. Grant this for thine only Son Jesus Christ's sake.
