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 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 71

In te, Domine, speravi

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

let me never be put to shame.

2 Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness;*

incline your ear to me and save me.

3 Be my rock and my refuge, where I may always return;*

you have promised to help me, for you are my stronghold and my fortress.

4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the ungodly,*

out of the hand of the unrighteous and the cruel.

5 For you, O Lord God, are the one I long for;*

you are my hope, even from my youth.

6 Through you have I been upheld ever since I was born;*

you took me out of my mother's womb; my praise shall be always of you.

7 I have become a portent to many;*

but you are my refuge and my strength.

8 O let my mouth be filled with your praise,*

that I may sing of your glory all the day long.

9 Cast me not away in the time of old age;*

forsake me not when my strength fails me.

10 For my enemies speak against me, and those who lie in wait for my life take counsel together.*

They say, "God has forsaken him; pursue him and take him, for there is none to deliver him."

11 Go not far from me, O God;*

my God, make haste to help me.

12 Let those who are my adversaries be confounded and perish;*

let those who seek to do me evil be covered with shame and dishonor.

13 As for me, I will always patiently abide,*

and will praise you more and more.

14 My mouth shall speak daily of your righteousness and salvation,*

for I know not the end of them.

15 I will go forth in the strength of the Lord God,*

and will make mention of your righteousness, yours alone.

16 You, O God, have taught me from my youth;*

even to this day I am telling of your wondrous works.

17 Forsake me not, O God, in my old age, when I am gray-headed,*

until I have proclaimed your strength to this generation, and your power to all those who are yet to come.

18 Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens;*

you have done great things. Who is like you, O God?

19 Oh, what great troubles and adversities you have shown me! And yet you have turned and refreshed me;*

indeed, you have brought me again from the depths of the earth.

20 You have brought me to great honor*

and comforted me on every side;

21 Therefore will I praise you and your faithfulness, O God, playing on a stringed instrument;*

to you will I sing with the harp, O Holy One of Israel.

22 My lips will rejoice when I sing to you,*

and so will my soul, which you have delivered.

23 My tongue also shall speak of your righteousness all the day long,*

for they are confounded and brought to shame who seek to do me evil.
