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 135

Laudate Nomen

1 O praise the Lord. Praise the Name of the Lord;*

offer praise, you servants of the Lord,

2 You who stand in the house of the Lord,*

in the courts of the house of our God.

3 O praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;*

sing praises unto his Name, for it is lovely.

4 For the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself*

and Israel for his own possession.

5 For I know that the Lord is great,*

and that our Lord is above all gods.

6 Whatsoever the Lord pleases he does, in heaven and on earth,*

in the seas and in all the deep places.

7 He brings forth clouds from the ends of the earth*

and sends forth lightning with the rain, bringing the wind out of his treasuries.

8 It was he who struck down the firstborn of Egypt,*

both of man and beast.

9 He sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O land of Egypt,*

against Pharaoh and all his servants.

10 He smote many nations,*

and slew mighty kings:

11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og the king of Bashan,*

and all the kingdoms of Canaan.

12 And he gave their land to be an inheritance,*

an inheritance for Israel his people.

13 Your Name, O Lord, endures for ever;*

so does your renown, O Lord, from one generation to another.

14 For the Lord will avenge his people*

and have compassion upon his servants.

15 As for the idols of the nations, they are but silver and gold,*

the work of human hands.

16 They have mouths, but they speak not;*

eyes have they, but they see not;

17 They have ears, and yet they hear not,*

neither is there any breath in their mouths.

18 Those who make them are like them,*

and so are all who put their trust in them.

19 Praise the Lord, O house of Israel;*

praise the Lord, O house of Aaron.

20 Praise the Lord, O house of Levi;*

you who fear the Lord, praise the Lord.

21 Praised be the Lord from Zion,*

who dwells in Jerusalem. Praise the Lord.
