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 44

Deus, auribus

1 We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us*

what you did in the days of old:

2 How you drove out the nations with your hand, and planted our fathers in the land;*

how you destroyed the nations and cast them out.

3 For they did not possess the land by their own sword,*

neither was it their own arm that helped them,

4 But by your right hand, and your arm, and the light of your countenance, *

because you favored them.

5 You are my King, O God;*

you send help to Jacob.

6 Through you we will overthrow our enemies,*

and in your Name will we tread down those who rise up against us.

7 For I will not trust in my bow;*

it is not my sword that shall help me;

8 But you save us from our enemies*

and put to shame those who hate us.

9 We make our boast in God all day long*

and will praise your Name for ever.

10 But now you have cast us off and put us to shame,*

and you do not go forth with our armies.

11 You make us turn our backs upon our enemies,*

so that those who hate us plunder our goods.

12 You let us be eaten up like sheep*

and have scattered us among the nations.

13 You sell your people for nothing*

and take no money for them.

14 You make us the reproach of our neighbors,*

to be laughed to scorn, and held in derision by those who are round about us.

15 You make us a byword among the nations,*

so that the peoples shake their heads at us.

16 My disgrace is daily before me,*

and the shame of my face has covered me,

17 Because of the voice of the slanderer and blasphemer,*

because of the enemy and avenger.

18 And though all this has come upon us, yet we do not forget you,*

nor have we been unfaithful to your covenant.

19 Our heart has not turned back,*

nor have our steps departed from your way,

20 Though you have crushed us in the haunt of jackals,*

and covered us with the shadow of death.

21 If we have forgotten the Name of our God, and held up our hands to any strange god,*

shall not God search it out? For he knows the very secrets of the heart.

22 For your sake we are killed all the day long,*

and are counted as sheep appointed to be slain.

23 Rise up, O Lord! Why are you sleeping?*

Awake, and cast us not away for ever.

24 Why do you hide your face*

and forget our misery and trouble?

25 For our soul is brought low, even to the dust;*

our belly cleaves to the ground.

26 Arise, O Lord, and help us,*

and deliver us for your mercy's sake.
