Saturday before Lent V
Saturday, March 17, 2018

O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Psalm 119   Lucerna pedibus meis


Your word is a lantern to my feet *

and a light upon my path.


I have sworn and am determined *

to keep your righteous judgments.


I am deeply troubled; *

preserve my life, O Lord, according to your word.


Accept, O Lord, the willing tribute of my lips, *

and teach me your judgments.


My life is always in my hand, *

yet I do not forget your law.


The wicked have set a trap for me, *

but I have not strayed from your commandments.


Your decrees are my inheritance for ever; *

truly, they are the joy of my heart.


I have applied my heart to fulfill your statutes *

for ever and to the end.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

A suitable passage of Scripture is read.

The love of God has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. Romans 5:5

Thanks be to God.

Lord, have mercy.

Christ, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your Name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done, on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Save us from the time of trial,

and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours,

now and for ever. Amen.

Lord, hear our prayer;

And let our cry come to you.

The Collect of the Day
Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

(For the ELW Prayer of the Day, see p. 29, Fifth Sunday in Lent, Year B.)

Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your apostles, “Peace I give to you; my peace I leave with you”: Regard not our sins, but the faith of your Church, and give to us the peace and unity of that heavenly city, where with the Father and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, now and for ever. Amen.

Free intercessions may be offered. (Include your petitions.)

Let us bless the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

The almighty and merciful Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, bless us and keep us. Amen.
