As Lent continues, ESN will share collects from The Book of Common Prayer and prayer requests. Scholar’s Compass will continue, but will appear on weekdays instead of Sundays.
Stir up thy power, O Lord, and with great might come
among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins,
let thy bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver
us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and
the Holy Ghost, be honor and glory, world without end.
Prayer requests for the week:
- Pray for God to come among all our communities, whether at work or home or play.
- Pray for God’s bountiful grace and mercy to be near us when we are conscious of our sins and troubles.
- Pray for a strong sense of the Holy Spirit’s presence this Lent.
