The Daily Office is a liturgy of prayer and scripture used by Christians around the world, sharing the same verses of scripture and traditional prayers each day. The Daily Office normally consists of three prayer times – morning, midday and evening prayer.
In each prayer time of the Daily Office, scripture and prayers are read and songs are sung. They can be experienced personally or corporately.
The routine of the Daily Office take discipline – it means stopping your day at least three times, and taking the time and space to pray. But the time is rewarding – it connects us to Christians around the world and of ages past, it reminds us who we are and who should be centered on, and it leads us to deeper integration of Jesus in all parts of our day.
