A simple online Daily Prayer
Here's a simple form of Daily Prayer. An order for each day of the week. Click on the page for each day [lower left] to open it. Use it anytime in the day: first thing, coffee break, home from work. Take your time. Make it personal especially at the points in the order where you are invited to do that. Speak out the words if the setting allows.
By reciting the Psalm and the Scripture Song, through using the opening and concluding prayer as well as The Lord's Prayer, you connect with the daily praying of the whole Church as you feed on the Word of God and the Church's rich store of spiritual wisdom.
While the psalms and short readings are changed on a two-, three- or four-week rotation, all the texts change when the Season of the Church Year changes. Currently the days of the week posted are for:
DAILY PRAYER: SEASON OF THE WORD MADE FLESH
[Christmas Day until Candlemas, 2nd February]
