Lent 1 — Invocabit

by: Rev. Travis Loeslie

Collect of the Day:
O Lord God, You led your people through the wilderness and brought them to the promised land. Guide the people of your Church that following our Savior we may walk through the wilderness of this world toward the glory of the world to come; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
