Daily Prayer

 One of the greatest gifts the English Reformers gave the chuch are the services of Morning and Evening Prayer.  These daily prayer services were designed to provide a context within which God's Word could be read, heard, learned, and spiritually digested.  The services followed a very basic outline:

Penitience - In which we confess our sins to God and receive by faith his provision of forgiveness in Jesus Christ.

Praise - In which we praise God with our lips having been opened by the gracious mercy of God.  The praise-book of the Church is the Psalms.

Proclamation - In which God's Word, a section from the Old Testament and a section from the New Testament, is read, received, and believed.

Prayer - In which we lift up to our Heavenly Father, on the basis of His Son's perfect work, our petitions for all that we, the church, and the world may need for our bodies as well as our souls.

The Scripture readings for the Daily Offices are found in the Daily Lectionary which you can access HERE.

The complete services for Morning and Evening Prayer can be found here and here.
