the DAILY office

The ancient Christian practice of beginning and ending each day with Bible reading and prayer is known as the "Daily Office" - as in the "daily service" or "daily duty" of Christians.

The Daily Office primarily consists of Morning and Evening Prayer (although there are other prayer times/services, such as Noonday Prayer and Compline, which is prayer right before bed). 

It finds its roots in ancient Israel. God's people were commanded to talk about God's word "when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." (Deut. 6:7)  Our mornings and evenings (and the day in between!) are important to God.

All you need is a Bible and a Daily Office Booklet to do the Daily Office of Morning and Evening Prayer.
