This web page provides resources for Anglican Daily Prayer, based on the American 1928 Book of Common Prayer. It focuses on the Daily Office, a pattern of corporate or individual daily prayer for the laity created by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer in the original 1549 Book of Common Prayer.
Cranmer’s intention with the twice daily prayer was to simplify the Liturgy of the Hours of the medieval monasteries, which in turn was based on early church practice dating back to at least the fourth century. Since Cranmer’s day, regular observance of the Daily Office has been a central part of Anglican worship.
These resources are intended to help Christians who want to build their spiritual disicpline by practicing these historic offices, whether individually, in their home, in a small group or at church.
