Pray with me

I’ve moved my order of Daily Prayer from a Google Doc to a new Daily Prayer page on this blog.  The form of prayer I use is an adaptation of The Suffrages or Responsive Prayer that have appeared in all major Lutheran worship books in this country since the Common Service Book.  I’ve added to this order of prayer a recitation of the 10 Commandments, following Luther’s suggestion:

Let all Christians drill themselves in the catechism daily, and constantly put it into practice, guarding themselves with the greatest care and diligence against the poisonous infection of such security or arrogance. Let them constantly read and teach, learn and meditate and ponder. Let them never stop until they have proved by experience and are certain that they have taught the devil to death and have become more learned than God himself and all his saints.

–  Martin Luther, Preface to the Large Catechism (Kolb/Wengert Translation, Book of Concord, Fortress Press, 2000).

I’ve also added to the page the appropriate collect for the week and hyperlinks for the daily lectionary readings, which will be updated weekly.  To practice your daily prayer with this simple order and these daily readings, simply bookmark the Daily Prayer Page, or return daily to this blog and click on the Daily Prayer link under For More Information.

Let us pray.
