Daily Devotions
(Jump to: Sun am, Sun pm, Mon am, Mon pm, Tues am, Tues pm, Wed am, Wed pm, Thurs am, Thurs pm, Fri am, Fri pm, Sat am, Sat pm)

  • These daily devotions are for those who wish to base their worship on the New Testament, and whose time for prayer may be limited.
    This order may be used by itself or as a brief form of daily worship, with the inclusion of a Scripture reading or readings.
    Each week the seven sections of the Lord’s Prayer are covered, with a morning and evening devotion for each day.

The same pattern is followed throughout:

a short opening, followed by a Gospel reflection, based on one or more Gospel sayings;

after a brief meditation, a reflection on the epistles;

the daily reading of Scripture may follow;

the order concludes with prayer.
