Prophets of the Old Testament

In the Book of Alternative Services of the Anglican Church of Canada, today is the commemoration of the Prophets of the Old Testament.

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.

One response to “Prophets of the Old Testament

    Todd,
    Great work, brother. Who do we commemorate in our prayers this Sunday?

    At the moment I have a blend of a couple of prayers:
    We remember this week those who have personally ministered Christ to us through Word and deed; give thanks for those you have used, dear Lord, to instruct us in your truths, to pray for us in our need, to encourage us in our troubles, and to challenge us in our sins to repent and receive your great mercy

    David
