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 59

Eripe me de inimicis

1 Deliver me from my enemies, O God;*

defend me from those who rise up against me.

2 O deliver me from the evildoers,*

and save me from the bloodthirsty.

3 For behold, they lie in wait for my soul;*

the mighty are gathered against me, without any offense or fault of mine, O Lord.

4 They run and prepare themselves without cause.*

Arise therefore to help me, and behold.

5 Rise up, O Lord God of hosts, O God of Israel, to visit all the nations, *

and be not merciful to those who offend with malicious wickedness.

6 They go to and fro in the evening;*

they howl like dogs, and run about through the city.

7 Behold, they boast with their mouths, and taunts are on their lips,*

for they say, "Who will hear us?"

8 But you, O Lord, shall hold them in derision,*

and you shall laugh all the nations to scorn.

9 My strength I will ascribe unto you,*

for you are the God of my refuge.

10 God shows me his plenteous goodness,*

and God shall let me look in triumph upon my enemies.

11 Slay them not, lest my people forget it,*

but scatter them abroad by your might, and put them down, O Lord our shield.

12 For the sin of their mouth, and for the words of their lips, they shall be taken in their pride,*

because their talk is cursing and lies.

13 Consume them in your wrath; consume them, that they may perish,*

and know that it is God who rules in Jacob, and unto the ends of the world.

14 In the evening they will return,*

howl like dogs, and run about through the city.

15 They will run here and there for meat*

and growl if they are not satisfied.

16 As for me, I will sing of your power, and will praise your mercy early in the morning,*

for you have been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble.

17 Unto you, O my strength, will I sing,*

for you, O God, are my refuge, and my merciful God.
