Morning Prayer

Join us every weekday morning (Mon–Fri) during the academic year in prayer and reflection on the Scriptures at 7:30 AM in-person or online via Facebook or YouTube.

The service of Morning Prayer developed out of the monastic tradition of dividing the day into set hours for prayer, scripture reading, and reflection on the Psalms. In the sixteenth century the English reformer Thomas Cranmer simplified the set monastic prayers to be more suitable for the realities of daily life, thus giving us Morning and Evening Prayer (what is called the Daily Office). Morning prayer includes set prayers, a few readings of Scripture, and praying some of the Psalms. You can find the service of Morning Prayer in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer.

You are invited to begin your work day in God’s presence through prayer and contemplation of the Scriptures.

If you have questions or want to learn more about the Daily Office, contact Dr. Rachel Toombs, Director of Formation and Connection.
