Front step help needed please.

I am trying to do a repair to my functional front step. It is a cement/concrete porch with brick accent. I need help determining what sort of mortar to buy and use to set the bricks like they were and fill in the necessary space to complete the step. I do have some pictures and measurements for reference. Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Get a bag of sacrete mortar mix. Mortar is what was used to lay the brick. You could spray completed work after completely set with Thompsons water seal to protect it from constant water permeation, the thing that caused the problem, that and salt
