Lauds in Lent, Thursday
Lent at Lauds, Thursday – Short Lesson –
They are your people, and your heritage, which you brought out of Egypt, from the midst of the iron furnace. Let your eyes be open to the supplication of your servant, and to the supplication of your people Israel, giving ear to them whenever they call to you. For you separated them from among all the people of the earth, to be your heritage, as you declared through Moses, your servant, where you brought our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD.
~1 Kings 8: 51-53
