Daily Prayer from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer


Morning prayer and evening prayer according to the Church of England Prayerbook. The lectionary used passes through the whole Bible each year (without any omissions), including the New Testament twice. The Psalms are from Coverdale's translation as in the BCP. The Litany follows on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The readings are not replaced with seasonal propers on the assumption you are attending a Sunday service in addition. The prayers for our Rulers are in the form used outside of England. This is a work in very slow progress!
