Daily Devotions

 

Many of our busy lives have been disrupted and it’s vital that we live into a new rhythm, trusting in God’s love and rest for us all. Here are some worthwhile resources:

 

Daily Devotions for families and individuals:  Click here for access to Daily Devotions that you can carry out at home.  Daily Devotions

 

The Daily Office can be found on the Mission St. Clare website, in particular Morning or Evening Prayer. Readings are provided along with recorded hymns. You can click the image at the top of the Mission St. Clare to go to the current Morning or Evening Prayer.

The Book of Common Prayer can be found online here: www.bcponline.org. Here is a PDF version [insert] of Daily Devotions for Families and Individuals, p. 136 of the BCP. These brief services provide a God-centered framework for your day.

A New Zealand Prayer Book can also be found online here: www.anglicanprayerbook.nz.

 

Check out this prayer on p. 184 from Night Prayer (their Compline):

Lord,
it is night.

The night is for stillness.
Let us be still in the presence of God.

It is night after a long day.
What has been done has been done;
what has not been done has not been done;
let it be.

The night is dark.
Let our fears of the darkness of the world and of our own lives
rest in you.

The night is quiet.
Let the quietness of your peace enfold us,
all dear to us,
and all who have no peace.

The night heralds the dawn.
Let us look expectantly to a new day,
new joys,
new possibilities.

In your name we pray. Amen.
