The Daily Office.

The Daily Office is a set rhythm of reading the Scriptures, singing, and prayer. Sometimes called the Liturgy of the Hours, the Daily Office has been around for centuries, and is a spiritual practice to help us center each day in the presence of God while engaging the whole sweep of Scripture. In fact, if you read the Daily Office readings every day, you’d read most of the Old Testament in two years, and all of the New Testament every year. To learn more about the office, check out this post.

We’ll post the readings for each day’s office this week below:

Daily Office Readings | Week of 10.6.2019

This prayer (or Collect) and these scriptures are taken from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer.

Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we to pray, and to give more than we either desire or deserve: Pour upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things for which we are not worthy to ask, except through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
