Praying Together at Home

Get the whole Book of Common Prayer in a PDF to use at home.

Or link to this online version for specific services:

Learn how to pray Morning Prayer at home using just your Book of Common Prayer and Bible in this friendly video from Bishop Jennifer Reddall of The Episcopal Diocese of Arizona. 

Daily Office Website: An online group of Episcopalians in North America posts daily Morning and Evening Prayer, with lessons, psalms, and prayers already chosen for you. If you’re using this on Sunday, note that it won’t have the same readings we read that day at Trinity, because the website uses the “Daily Office” readings and we’re using the Sunday readings – same day, different calendar.

Daily Prayer Anytime: A resource of Forward Movement (who brought us RenewalWorks).  Enter the date of the service you wish to pray, and you’ll get a ready-to-use service from The Book of Common Prayer that makes all the choices from tables and lectionaries for you.

Prayers for the Sick:

Prayer for People Critically Ill or Facing Great Uncertainty
God of the present moment,
God who in Jesus stills the storm
and soothes the frantic heart;
bring hope and courage to all
who wait or work in uncertainty.
Bring hope that you will make them the equal
of whatever lies ahead.
Bring them courage to endure what cannot be avoided,
for your will is health and wholeness;
you are God, and we need you.
adapted from A New Zealand Prayer Book, as shared by Episcopal Relief and Development

The Litany of Joy that Deacon Leslie shared on July 26.

Pray with the whole Episcopal Church from home: The National Cathedral is offering livestream Eucharists on Sundays and several other online prayer options. View a calendar with links to the services here.
