Daily Prayer is the first daily prayer book in the Church of England's history. It contains a Daily Office - a collection of orders of service designed to be prayed at different points through the day. The services may be prayed individually, in groups, churches or in religious communities. Drawing on the daily Bible readings laid out in the Common Worship Lectionary, they allow Anglicans to link their personal devotions into the shared prayer life of the Church. As well as the more traditional services of Morning, Evening, and Night Prayer, Daily Prayer also offers Prayer During the Day, especially designed for those new to regular liturgical prayer. Each service contains the three key elements of praise, intercession and engagement with Scripture. Prayers are included for both Ordinary Time and the seasons of the Christian year. It contains: The Calendar Prayer During the Day Forms of Penitence Morning and Evening Prayer Night Prayer (Compline) Prayers of Intercession The Litany Collects and Refrains Canticles The Psalter The Lord's Prayer and Apostles' Creed on the inside back cover for quick reference This bonded leather edition of the Daily Office of the Church of England makes a handsome addition to any liturgical bookshelf and is an ideal gift for ordinands, clergy and readers. Bound in crimson leather, it includes a slipcase.
