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 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 22

Deus, Deus meus

1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me,*

and are so far from my cry, and from the words of my complaint?

2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you do not hear;*

in the night season also, but I find no rest.

3 But you remain holy,*

enthroned upon the praises of Israel.

4 Our fathers hoped in you;*

they trusted in you, and you delivered them.

5 They called upon you, and were delivered;*

they put their trust in you, and were not confounded.

6 But as for me, I am a worm, and no man,*

scorned by all, and the outcast of the people.

7 All those who see me laugh me to scorn;*

they curl their lips, and shake their heads, saying,

8 "He trusted in God, that he would deliver him;*

let him deliver him, if he will have him."

9 But you are he that took me out of my mother's womb;*

you were my hope, when I was yet upon my mother's breasts.

10 I have been cast upon you ever since I was born;*

you are my God, even from my mother's womb.

11 O go not far from me, for trouble is near at hand,*

and there is none to help me.

12 Many oxen have come around me;*

fat bulls of Bashan close me in on every side.

13 They gape at me with their mouths,*

like a ravening and a roaring lion.

14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint;*

my heart also in the midst of my body is like melting wax.

15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue cleaves to my gums,*

and you bring me into the dust of death.

16 For many dogs have come about me,*

and the council of the wicked lays siege against me.

17 They pierced my hands and my feet; I can count all my bones;*

they stand staring and looking upon me.

18 They part my garments among them,*

and casts lots for my clothing.

19 But be not far from me, O Lord.*

You are my succor; hasten to help me.

20 Deliver my soul from the sword,*

my life from the power of the dog.

21 Save me from the lion's mouth,*

and my soul in misery from among the horns of wild oxen.

22 I will declare your Name to my brethren;*

in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.

23 O praise the Lord, you that fear him;*

magnify him, all you seed of Jacob, and fear him, all you seed of Israel.

24 For he has not despised nor abhorred the low estate of the poor;*

he has not hidden his face from him, but when he called unto him, he heard him.

25 My praise is of you in the great congregation;*

my vows will I perform in the sight of those who fear him.

26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied;*

those who seek after the Lord shall praise him; may your hearts live for ever.

27 All the ends of the world shall remember, and be turned unto the Lord,*

and all the families of the nations shall worship before him.

28 For the kingdom is the Lord's,*

and he is the Governor among the peoples.

29 All those who sleep in the earth, how shall they worship him?*

All those who go down into the dust, how shall they kneel before him?

30 But my life shall be preserved in his sight, and my children shall worship him;*

they shall tell of the Lord to the generations to come;

31 And to a people yet unborn shall they declare his righteousness,*

that he has brought it to pass.
