Daily Scripture and Prayer
We grow in the grace and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ through Word, Sacrament, and Prayer. These disciplines of the Christian life are practiced through public worship and, except for Holy Communion and baptism, in private devotions. There are several ways to approach the soul’s need for scripture and prayer. No compilation is more tried and found faithful than the Book of Common Prayer (BCP). The BCP, especially 1662, 1928, and 2019 English language versions, provides a lectionary (1 to 3-year readings that move through the Bible and the Church Year), prayers, and services to support biblical and theologically sound devotional exercises. The readings and prayers are called “the daily office.”
The Sunday Readings follow the cycle of the lectionary in the Book of Common Prayer (2019) of the Anglican Church in America. The readings follow the life of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thus, one’s discipleship (word, sacrament, and prayer) is shaped by the person of our God and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
