Prayer

…responding to God,
by thought and by deeds, with or without words.

The Book of Common Prayer (or, BCP) is full of devotional and teaching resources for individuals and congregations, but it is also the primary symbol of our unity.
We, who are many and diverse, come together in Christ through our worship, our common prayer. The prayer book, most recently revised in 1979, contains our liturgies, our prayers, our theological documents, and much, much more.

Daily Prayer for All Seasons provides a holy way to order our days, no matter how full they seem. The Book of Common Prayer offers beautiful services for morning, noon, evening, and nighttime in a section called “The Daily Office” (pp. 35-146). Daily Prayer for All Seasons offers a variation on that theme, a shortened version, where a complete service covers one or two pages at most. Daily Prayer for All Seasons works for individuals, small groups, and/or congregations. This prayer book presents a variety of images of God by including inclusive and expansive language for and about God, and it presents a variety of words by including poetry, meditation and prayers from the broader community of faith.

 

Forward Day by Day The Forward Movement has been producing excellent, innovative resources to encourage spiritual growth in individuals and congregations for more than eighty years. Growing out of a determination of The Episcopal Church’s General Convention in 1934, Forward Movement brought new life to the church after a period of decline. Our “forward movement” was charged to “reinvigorate the life of the church” and since 1935 we have been offering discipleship and evangelism resources to encourage spiritual growth.
