The Common Rule: Praying Three Times a Day
We invite you to use our daily prayer liturgy as the format for your prayers either online, or by printing them out at home.
- All Souls Daily Prayer Site
- printable PDF (for praying off-line)
- weekly readings & cycle of prayer
- ACNA Prayer Book (four Daily Offices full lectionaries)
You can also use the following collects as simple prayers to use three times a day:
for morning prayer
Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought us in safety to this new day: Preserve us with your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
for during the day
Go before us, O Lord, in all our doings with your most gracious favor, and further us with your continual help; that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in you, we may glorify your holy Name, and finally, through your mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
for prayer in the evening
Be present, O merciful God, and protect us through the hours of this night, so that we who are wearied by the changes and chances of this life may rest in your eternal changelessness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
