Many Anglicans say the ‘Morning Office’ [Prayer] each morning.

The Morning Office is a structured prayer session designed for each day of the week and set out in A New Zealand Prayer Book  ( How do we use the book? Prayers are said aloud. If you are part of a group the reading is shared with the leader reading the feint print and the other participants reading aloud the bold print. When you reach the numbered sections they are read antiphonally i.e. the leader saying the first part up to the colon, the participants the second part.

Each morning the Lectionary (download the lectionary from here) has a set Psalm and bible readings for Morning Prayer. The psalms are spoken antiphonally and  end with ‘Glory to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning is now: and shall be forever. Amen.’ In a group people take take it in turns to read the sections from the Bible.

A time of prayer takes place where the prayer book lists activities in bold. You do not do need to do everything listed. Instead you could pray the Collect listed in the lectionary or the one from the previous Sunday. Include a time of open prayer and conclude with The Lord’s Prayer.
