When it comes to deciding how to pray we do well to remember the words of the former Archbishop of Canterbury Donald Coggan who once advised, “why be poor when you don’t have to be?’ There is a wealth of resources available to us to assist and guide our praying. As Anglicans our natural Launchpad is the Daily Office also known as the Occasional Offices. Coming to God at particular times of the day on a regular basis helps to create a rhythm of prayer that has been deeply rooted in the life of God’s people since the 4th century. The ACNA Book Of Common Prayer (BCP) 2019 has daily offices for both corporate and private use; ‘Morning Prayer’, ‘Midday Prayer’, ‘Evening Prayer’, ‘Compline’, ‘Family Prayer’, as well as ‘Supplemental Canticles for Worship’.
Here are some helpful links:
Each of the daily Offices includes liturgical prayers and Scripture readings (also known as the Lectionary) based on the Church’s seasons and holy days.
