Daily Prayer
Praying the Daily Office

Participation in the Daily Office is at the heart of Anglican spirituality. It condenses the ancient practice that uses daily prayers to mark the times of day.

 

For Episcopalians, this generally comes in the form of the two main offices of Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer. It consists of regular recitation of the Psalms and reading through the Bible in a two-year cycle. This prayer practice purpose is to remind us that all time is sacred since all-time belongs to God and to draw us closer to God.

 

St. Paul’s offers morning prayer Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at eight o’clock.  On Wednesday nights before parish dinner, we sing Evening Prayer which is called Evensong.

“For they so ordered the matter, that all the whole Bible (or the greatest part thereof) should be read over every year; intending thereby, that the Clergy, and especially such as were Ministers in the congregation, should (by often reading, and meditation in God’s word) be stirred up to godliness themselves.”

—From the Preface to the 1549 Book of Common Prayer
