Weekly Devotions

Collect of the Week

Almighty and eternal God, you caused your beloved Son to take our nature on himself, that he might give all humanity the example of humility and suffer death on the cross for our sins. Mercifully grant us a believing knowledge of this so that we may follow the example of his patience, and be partakers of the benefits of his sacred passion and death; through your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy
Spirit, one true God, now and forever. Amen

Lord’s Prayer

This week we are to pray each day with an emphasis on the meaning of each petition of the Lord’s Prayer according to the following:

Our Father…
The power of sons of God in prayer

Hallowed be Thy Name
For the orthodox catholic faith

Thy Kingdom Come
The ministry of the pastor

Thy Will be done
The defeat of Satan and our enemies

Give us this day our daily bread
Good government and health

Forgive…as we forgive
A spirit of true repentance

Lead us not…but deliver us
The overcoming of habitual sin
