Lent 2 — Reminiscere
by: Rev. Travis Loeslie
Collect of the Day:
O God, You see that of ourselves we have no strength. By your mighty power defend us from all adversities that may happen to the body and from all evil thoughts that may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Psalm 25:1–2a, 7–8, 11 (antiphon: Psalm 25:6, 2b, 22) — Remember (reminiscere) your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love…
Psalm 121 (antiphon: v. 1-2) — I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Old Testament Reading:
Genesis 32:22–32 — Jacob wrestles with God
Psalm 25:17–18 — Consider my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins.
1 Thessalonians 4:1–7 — A life pleasing to God
Psalm 106:1–4 — Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! Who can utter the mighty deeds of the Lord, or declare all his praise? Blessed are they who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times! Remember me, O Lord, when you show favor to your people; help me when you save them.
