Wednesday after Advent II
Wednesday, December 13, 2017

 
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.

Alleluia.

Psalm 121   Levavi oculos

1

I lift up my eyes to the hills; *

from where is my help to come?

2

My help comes from the Lord, *

the maker of heaven and earth.

3

He will not let your foot be moved *

and he who watches over you will not fall asleep.

4

Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel *

shall neither slumber nor sleep;

5

The Lord himself watches over you; *

the Lord is your shade at your right hand,

6

So that the sun shall not strike you by day, *

nor the moon by night.

7

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; *

it is he who shall keep you safe.

8

The Lord shall watch over your going out and your coming in, *

from this time forth for evermore.

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.

If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:17–18

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
Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; 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. 19, Second Sunday of Advent, Year B.)

Almighty Savior, who at noonday called your servant Saint Paul to be an apostle to the Gentiles: We pray you to illumine the world with the radiance of your glory, that all nations may come and worship you; for you live and reign for ever and 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.
