Prayer Resources

We use a variety of resources to tweet the Daily Office and usually — but not always — announce in advance which liturgy we’ll be using.   The prayer leader gets to choose which liturgy to use! Here are our faves:

Book of Common Prayer

Celebrating Common Prayer
A version of the Daily Office by the Society of St. Francis (SSP) that follows the lectionary in the Church of England’s Common Worship.

Church of England
Offers Daily Office prayers from the Book of Common Prayer and Common Worship: Services and Prayers for the Church of England.  Choice of contemporary or traditional forms. Mobile and printer friendly.

The Daily Office and The Daily Office blog

Celtic Daily Office
The Northumbria Community located in the United Kingdom prays the Celtic Daily Office and makes it available on their site which includes reflections on the Weekly Rule, audio/visual resources, a picture gallery and bookstore.

St. Bede’s Breviary

Another excellent resource is http://divineoffice.org/. I use it nearly every day and really like the fact that they pray the office aloud.
