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 88

Domine Deus

1 O Lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before you;*

O let my prayer enter into your presence; incline your ear to my call.

2 For my soul is full of trouble,*

and my life draws nigh to the Grave.

3 I am counted as one of those who go down into the pit,*

and I have become as one who has no strength.

4 I have become like the dead, and like the slain who lie in the grave,*

whom you remember no more, and who are cut off from your hand.

5 You have laid me in the lowest pit,*

in a place of darkness, and in the deep.

6 Your indignation lies heavy upon me,*

and you have overwhelmed me with all your storms.

7 You have put my friends far from me,*

and made me to be abhorred by them.

8 I am in prison;*

I cannot go forth.

9 My sight fails because of trouble;*

Lord, I have called daily upon you; I have stretched forth my hands unto you.

10 Do you show wonders among the dead,*

or shall the dead rise up again and praise you?

11 Shall your loving-kindness be shown in the grave,*

or your faithfulness in destruction?

12 Shall your wondrous works be known in the dark,*

and your righteousness in the land where all things are forgotten?

13 Unto you have I cried, O Lord,*

and early shall my prayer come before you.

14 Lord, why do you cast off my soul*

and hide your face from me?

15 I am in misery, like one who is at the point of death;*

even from my youth, your terrors have I suffered with a troubled mind.

16 Your wrathful displeasure goes over me,*

and the fear of you has undone me.

17 Daily they come round about me like water,*

and encompass me on every side.

18 My companions and neighbors you have put away from me,*

and hidden my friends out of my sight.
