Daily Office Guide
The Christian practice of morning and evening prayer
Pick up the new Bible reading and prayer guide at the foyer centre table today for the season of Ordinary Time (July 22 — August 31).
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.
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.
The Daily Office reminds us that:
Our mornings and evenings belong to God
Scripture and prayer are our daily food
God dwells with us each day
God loves us, even when we forget or fail to do the Daily Office!
