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 41

Beatus qui intelligit

1 Blessed is the one who considers the poor and needy;*

the Lord shall deliver him in the time of trouble.

2 The Lord preserves him and keeps him alive, that he may be blessed upon earth,*

and delivers him not over to the will of his enemies.

3 The Lord comforts him when he lies sick upon his bed,*

and restores him from his bed of sickness.

4 I said, "Lord, be merciful to me;*

heal my soul, for I have sinned against you."

5 My enemies speak evil of me:*

"When shall he die, and his name perish?"

6 And if anyone comes to see me, he speaks empty words;*

his heart conceives falsehood within him, and when he goes forth, he tells it.

7 All my enemies whisper together against me;*

even against me are they devising evil:

8 "A deadly thing has taken hold of him,*

and now that he lies down, he will rise up no more."

9 Indeed, even my own familiar friend, whom I trusted, who also ate of my bread,*

has lifted up his heel against me.

10 But be merciful to me, O Lord;*

raise me up again, and I shall repay them.

11 By this I know you favor me,*

that my enemy does not triumph over me.

12 And when I am in health, you uphold me,*

and shall set me before your face for ever.

13 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,*

world without end. Amen.
