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 89

Misericordias Domini

1 My song shall be always of the loving-kindness of the Lord;*

with my mouth will I ever be proclaiming your faithfulness, from one generation to another.

2 For I have said, "Mercy shall be built up for ever;*

your faithfulness shall be established in the heavens."

3 I have made a covenant with my chosen one;*

I have sworn to David my servant:

4 "Your seed will I establish for ever,*

and set up your throne from one generation to another."

5 O Lord, the heavens will praise your wondrous works*

and your faithfulness in the assembly of the saints.

6 For who in the clouds can be compared unto the Lord?*

And who among the gods is like unto the Lord?

7 God is greatly to be feared in the council of the saints,*

and to be held in reverence by all those who are round about him.

8 O Lord God of hosts, who is like you?*

Your faithfulness, most mighty Lord, is round about you.

9 You rule the raging of the sea;*

you still the waves when they arise.

10 You have subdued Rahab of the deep, and destroyed her;*

you have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.

11 The heavens are yours; the earth also is yours;*

you laid the foundation of the world, and all that is in it.

12 You have made the north and the south;*

Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in your Name.

13 You have a mighty arm;*

strong is your hand, and high is your right hand.

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;*

mercy and truth shall go before your face.

15 Blessed are the people, O Lord, who rejoice in you;*

they shall walk in the light of your countenance.

16 Their delight shall be in your Name all the day long,*

and in your righteousness shall they make their boast.

17 For you are the glory of their strength,*

and by your favor you shall lift up our might.

18 For the Lord is our defense;*

the Holy One of Israel is our King.

19 You spoke in a vision to your saints, and said,*

"I have set the crown upon one who is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.

20 I have found David my servant;*

with my holy oil have I anointed him.

21 My hand shall hold him fast,*

and my arm shall strengthen him.

22 The enemy shall not be able to do him violence;*

the son of wickedness shall not hurt him.

23 I will smite his foes before his face*

and strike down those who hate him.

24 My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him,*

and in my Name shall his horn be exalted.

25 I will give him dominion over the sea,*

and with his right hand shall he rule the rivers.

26 He shall say to me, "You are my Father,*

my God, and the rock of my salvation."

27 And I will make him my firstborn,*

higher than the kings of the earth.

28 My mercy will I keep for him for ever,*

and my covenant shall stand fast with him.

29 His seed will I make to endure for ever*

and his throne as the days of heaven.

30 But if his children forsake my law,*

and do not walk in my judgments,

31 If they break my statutes and do not keep my commandments,*

I will punish their offenses with the rod, and their sin with scourges.

32 Nevertheless, my loving-kindness I will not utterly take from him,*

nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.

33 My covenant I will not break,*

nor alter the word that has gone out of my lips.

34 I have sworn once by my holiness*

that I will not fail David.

35 His seed shall endure for ever*

and his throne as the sun before me.

36 It shall endure for evermore as the moon,*

and as the faithful witness in the heavens.

37 But you have rejected and forsaken your Anointed;*

you are full of wrath against him.

38 You have broken the covenant with your servant;*

you have defiled his crown and cast it to the ground.

39 You have overthrown all his walls*

and broken down his strongholds.

40 All those who go by plunder him,*

and he has become a reproach to his neighbors.

41 You have exalted the right hand of his enemies,*

and made all his adversaries rejoice.

42 You have turned back the edge of his sword*

and have not given him victory in the battle.

43 You have taken away his glory*

and cast his throne down to the ground.

44 The days of his youth you have shortened*

and covered him with dishonor.

45 Lord, how long will you utterly hide yourself?*

How long shall your wrath burn like fire?

46 O remember how short my time is;*

why have you made all people for nought?

47 What man is there who lives and shall not see death,*

and shall deliver his soul from the power of the Grave?

48 Lord, where are your loving-kindnesses of old,*

which you swore to David in your faithfulness?

49 Remember, Lord, how your servants are reproached,*

and how I bear in my bosom the rebukes of many people;

50 Remember how your enemies have reproached you, O Lord,*

how they have called after your Anointed King with cries of scorn.

51 Praised be the Lord for evermore.*

Amen and Amen.
