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 7

Domine, Deus meus

1 O Lord my God, in you have I put my trust;*

save me from all those who persecute me, and deliver me,

2 Lest they devour me like a lion and tear me in pieces*

while there is none to help.

3 If I have repaid evil to him who has dealt with me as a friend,*

or plundered him who without any cause is my enemy,

5 Then let my enemy pursue me and overtake me,*

let him trample my life into the ground, and lay my honor in the dust.

6 Stand up, O Lord, in your wrath, and lift yourself up against the fury of my enemies;*

rise up for me in the judgment that you have commanded.

7 Then shall the assembly of the peoples be gathered about you;*

lift yourself up again, O Lord, O judge of all the nations.

8 Give sentence for me, O Lord, according to my righteousness,*

and according to the innocence that is in me.

9 O let the wickedness of the ungodly come to an end,*

but establish the just.

10 For the righteous God*

tries the very hearts and minds.

11 God is my shield and my defense;*

he preserves those who are true of heart.

12 God is a righteous judge, strong and patient;*

and God is provoked every day.

13 If a man will not repent, God will whet his sword;*

he will bend his bow, and make it ready.

14 He has prepared for him the instruments of death;*

he makes his arrows shafts of fire.

15 Behold, the ungodly is in labor with mischief;*

he has conceived wickedness and brought forth lies.

16 He has made a pit and dug it out,*

but will himself fall into the trap that he made for others.

17 For his malice shall come upon his own head,*

and his wickedness shall fall on his own scalp.

18 I will give thanks unto the Lord, according to his righteousness,*

and I will praise the Name of the Lord Most High.
