"Prayer is the way we work our way out of the comfortable but cramped world of self and into the spacious world of God." - Eugene Peterson
On Mondays, and Fridays we pray the daily morning office together at 7am right here in the prayer chapel. We follow a simple prayer liturgy and take time to pray for ourselves, our friends, our church, our city, and our world. We are always finished by 7:45, so you won't have to miss your morning class! On Wednesdays at 7am we have a celebration Holy Communion. Immediately following Communion on Wednesdays, we continue our fellowship over breakfast, either here at the church or at a coffee or breakfast spot on campus.
We strongly encourage everyone, whether you are able to make it to morning prayer or not, to develop habits of daily prayer in your home and with your family. One of the great gifts of the Anglican Reformation is the Book of Common Prayer (BCP). Our Sunday liturgy and morning offices follow the pattern laid out in the BCP. If you would like to learn to pray in the Anglican tradition, speak to Fr. Geoff or Paul. We can get a BCP into your hands and teach you how to use it!
Alternatively, if you find the BCP to be a bit of a learning curve, you can also check out these excellent Anglican prayer resources
Our Province, The Anglican Church in North America, will be publishing a revised Book of Common Prayer in 2019. The texts for the daily offices may be found on the ACNA website here.
Deacon Joshua Steele describes this simplified version of the Daily office this way: In the interests of making the Anglican Church in North America’s Daily Office Lectionary, Morning Prayer, and Evening Prayer more accessible, I have been putting together Daily Office Booklets, which contain the basics of the Morning and Evening Prayer liturgies, as well as the references for all Scripture readings. You can download and print the booklet here: http://anglicanpastor.com/rookieanglican/dailyofficebooklet/
Fr. Michael Jarrett curates the Audio Daily Office podcast of the Trinity Mission. Here you can join Fr. Michael every day of the year as he records morning, midday and evening prayer. It's a sort of "web-based abbey." Note that the lectionary and prayer texts Fr. Michael follows are slightly different to the ACNA texts, but are available at The Trinity Mission.
