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 substitute 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 An Election Saved!

Include election related collects until the U.S. General election. (Automatically disabled if only Canadian feasts are selected).

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 116

Dilexi, quoniam

1 I love the Lord,*

because he heard the voice of my prayer,

2 Because he inclined his ear to me;*

therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

3 The snares of death encompassed me, and the pains of the Grave laid hold of me;*

I suffered trouble and sorrow.

4 Then I called upon the Name of the Lord:*

"O Lord, I beseech you, deliver my soul."

5 Gracious is the Lord and righteous;*

indeed, our God is full of compassion.

6 The Lord preserves the simple;*

I was in misery, and he helped me.

7 Turn again to your rest, O my soul,*

for the Lord has rewarded you.

8 You have delivered my soul from death,*

my eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.

9 I will walk before the Lord*

in the land of the living.

10 I believed, and therefore will I speak: "I am greatly troubled."*

I said in my haste, "All men are liars."

11 What shall I give unto the Lord*

for all the benefits that he has done unto me?

12 I will lift up the cup of salvation*

and call upon the Name of the Lord.

13 I will pay my vows unto the Lord in the presence of all his people;*

dear in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

14 O Lord, I am your servant;*

I am your servant, and the child of your handmaid; you have broken my bonds asunder.

15 I will offer you the sacrifice of thanksgiving*

and will call upon the Name of the Lord.

16 I will pay my vows unto the Lord in the sight of all his people,*

in the courts of the Lord's house, even in the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Praise the Lord.
