Introduction to the Word and Liturgy for Worship
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. -2 Corinthians 4:16 (ESV)
God is creating within our inner nature a new person out of the old, so that when it is finished it will be completely new. It is by faith, not sight (5:7), however, that we understand that inwardly we are being renewed day by day’. The renewal of which he speaks is not something we see, feel or experience; it is apprehended by faith and hope..
The Collect of the Day
Grant, O Lord, that the course of this world may be so peaceably ordered by your providence, that your Church may joyfully serve you in quiet confidence and godly peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Out of the deep have I called unto you, O Lord; *
Lord, hear my voice.
2 O let your ears consider well *
the voice of my supplications.
3 If you, Lord, were to mark what is done amiss, *
O Lord, who could abide it?
4 For there is mercy with you; *
therefore you shall be feared.
5 I wait for the Lord; my soul waits for him; *
in his word is my trust.
6 My soul waits for the Lord, *
more than watchmen for the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.
7 O Israel, trust in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy, *
and with him is plenteous redemption;
8 And he shall redeem Israel *
from all their sins.
(from the New Coverdale Psalter as found in the 2019 Book of Common Prayer)
