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 77

Voce mea ad Dominum

1 I will cry unto God with my voice;*

even unto God will I cry with my voice, and he shall hearken unto me.

2 In the time of my trouble I sought the Lord;*

my hands were stretched out in the night without rest; my soul refused comfort.

3 When I think upon God, I groan;*

when I ponder, my spirit grows faint.

4 You hold my eyelids open;*

I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

5 I consider the days of old;*

I call to remembrance the years that are past.

6 In the night I commune with my own heart;*

I meditate and search my spirit.

7 Will the Lord cast me off for ever,*

and will he no more show his favor?

8 Is his mercy gone for ever,*

and has his promise come utterly to an end for evermore?

9 Has God forgotten to be gracious,*

and will he withhold his loving-kindness in displeasure?

10 And I said, "Has his right hand become weak?*

Has the hand of the Most High lost its strength?"

11 I will remember the works of the Lord,*

and call to mind your wonders of old time.

12 I will think also of all your works,*

and my talk shall be of your deeds.

13 Your way, O God, is holy;*

who is so great a God as our God?

14 You are the God who does wonders,*

and have declared your power among the peoples.

15 You have mightily delivered your people,*

even the sons of Jacob and Joseph.

16 The waters saw you, O God; the waters saw you and were afraid;*

the depths also were troubled.

17 The clouds poured out water, the skies thundered,*

and your arrows flashed on every side.

18 The voice of your thunder was heard in the whirlwind; the lightning lit up the world;*

the earth was moved and shook.

19 Your way was in the sea, and your paths in the great waters,*

yet your footsteps were not seen.

20 You led your people like sheep*

by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
