Setting changes take effect immediately. You do not need to save settings after you have updated them.

Psalter Cycle Saved!

Reading Cycle Saved!

Reading Length Saved!

Reading Audio Saved!

Canticle Rotation Saved!

Advanced Settings

Visual Theme Saved!

Use light mode or dark mode, or default to your computer's setting for light or dark mode

Substitute Sunday/Holy Day (Eucharistic) Lectionary Saved!

On Sundays and major holy days, do you want to use the standard Daily Office readings or substitue the 3-year Sunday/Holy Day cycle? When the Daily Office is used for the principal service of a church, the prayer book instructs you to replace the Daily Office readings with the three year cycle of Sunday and Holy Day readings. This is generally done only in churches and not when using the Daily Office as a personal devotion at home.

Confession Intro Length Saved!

Use either the short or long exhortation before the confession.

Absolution Style Saved!

After the confession, read an absolution suitable for a priest or a prayer suitable for a deacon or lay person.

Morning Prayer Invitatory Saved!

Open with the Venite (Psalm 95) always (traditional), have a special celebratory invitatory on Sundays and feasts (Pascha Nostrum during Eastertide or Jubilate/Psalm 100 otherwise), or rotate between the normal and celebratory invitatory each day. Regardless of which setting you choose, the Pascha Nostrum is always used during the first week of Easter, and the invitatory will never be the same as one of the day's appointed psalms.

Reading Headings Saved!

Show or hide headings from the English Standard Version of the Bible in scripture readings

Language Style for Prayers Saved!

Traditional and contemporary language options are available for the Kyrie (Lord have mercy) and the Lord's Prayer

National Holiday Collects Saved!

Show country-specific commemorations for the United States, Canada, or both.

Evening Prayer Suffrages Saved!

Choose which set of short prayers to be used each evening

Additional Collects Saved!

Use a different collect for each day of the week, or use the same two collects (from the classic prayer books) each day.

Prayers in the Time of Pandemic Saved!

Include a rotating set of collects for the duration of this pandemic

Great Litany at Morning Prayer Saved!

Include the Great Litany after the collects at Morning Prayer

Great Litany at Evening Prayer Saved!

Include the Great Litany after the collects at Evening Prayer

General Thanksgiving Saved!

Pray the General Thanksgiving at the end of Morning and Evening Prayer

Prayer of St. John Chrysostom Saved!

Pray the Prayer of St. John Chrysostom at the end of Morning and Evening Prayer. This prayer is suitable when praying in a group.

The Grace Saved!

Rotate each day through the three provided conclusions, or always use the same one from the classic prayer books.

Advent "O" Antiphons Saved!

The traditional "O" Antiphons are used before and after the first canticle in Evening Prayer during the last eight days of Advent. You can use literal translations of the original Latin, or the familiar paraphrases used in the hymn "O Come, O Come Emmanuel"

Psalm 107

Confitemini Domino

1 O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious,*

and his mercy endures for ever.

2 Let those whom the Lord has redeemed give thanks,*

whom he has delivered from the hand of the enemy,

3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east and from the west,*

from the north and from the south.

4 They went astray in the wilderness, even in the desert,*

and found no city to dwell in;

5 They were hungry and thirsty,*

and their soul fainted within them.

6 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble,*

and he delivered them from their distress.

7 He led them forth by a straight path*

until they came to a city where they might dwell.

8 Oh, that they would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness*

and declare the wonders that he does for the children of men!

9 For he satisfies the empty soul*

and fills the hungry soul with goodness.

10 Some sat in darkness, and in the shadow of death,*

being bound fast in misery and iron,

11 Because they rebelled against the words of God*

and lightly regarded the counsel of the Most High.

12 He also brought down their heart with heaviness;*

they fell down, and there was none to help them.

13 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble,*

and he delivered them out of their distress.

14 For he brought them out of darkness, and out of the shadow of death,*

and broke their bonds asunder.

15 Oh, that they would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness*

and declare the wonders that he does for the children of men!

16 For he has broken the gates of brass*

and shattered the bars of iron asunder.

17 The foolish were plagued for their offense*

and because of their wickedness.

18 Their soul abhorred all manner of food,*

and they were even close to death's door.

19 So when they cried unto the Lord in their trouble,*

he delivered them out of their distress.

20 He sent his word and healed them,*

and they were saved from destruction.

21 Oh, that they would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness*

and declare the wonders that he does for the children of men!

22 That they would offer unto him the sacrifice of thanksgiving*

and tell of his works with gladness!

23 Those who go down to the sea in ships,*

who carry out their business in great waters,

24 They behold the works of the Lord*

and his wonders in the deep.

25 For at his word the stormy wind arises,*

which lifts up the waves.

26 They are carried up to heaven and down again to the deep;*

their soul melts away because of the trouble.

27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,*

and are at their wits' end.

28 So when they cry unto the Lord in their trouble,*

he delivers them out of their distress.

29 For he makes the storm to cease,*

so that the waves are still.

30 Then they are glad, because they are at rest,*

and so he brings them into the haven where they desire to be.

31 Oh, that they would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness*

and declare the wonders that he does for the children of men!

32 That they would exalt him also in the congregation of the people*

and praise him in the seat of the elders!

33 He turns rivers into a wilderness*

and water-springs into thirsty ground,

34 A fruitful land he makes barren,*

because of the wickedness of those who dwell there.

35 Again, he makes the wilderness into pools of water*

and dry ground into water-springs;

36 And there he sets the hungry*

that they may build a city to dwell in,

37 That they may sow their land and plant vineyards*

to yield the fruits of increase.

38 He blesses them, so that they multiply exceedingly,*

and does not allow their cattle to decrease.

39 And again, when they are diminished and brought low,*

through oppression, through any plague or trouble,

40 Though he pours contempt on princes*

and lets them wander in the pathless wilderness,

41 Yet he helps the poor out of misery*

and increases their households like a flock of sheep.

42 The righteous will consider this and rejoice,*

and the mouth of all wickedness shall be stopped.

43 Whoever is wise will ponder these things,*

and shall understand the loving-kindness of the Lord.
