The Daily Office: Morning Prayer for Tuesday, 9 February 2021
The Daily Office: Morning Prayer. Our liturgy is a compilation from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, Enriching Our Worship, Volumes I & II, and the Iona Abbey Worship Book. Our readings this morning: Psalm 78:1-39, Isaiah 59:1-15a, 2 Timothy 1:1-14, and the Gospel of Mark 9:42-50. We pray for God to remove the second barrier of blame and shame. We continue to use an inclusive-language Affirmation of Faith derived from Ephesians 3:15-17, written by John Schimminger of St. John’s-Grace Episcopal Church. The Bible version used for our readings and commentary references is the Fifth Edition New Oxford Annotated Bible, New Revised Standard Version, with the Apocrypha: An Ecumenical Study Bible (with minor adjustments for inclusivity).
