From early in the history of the Church, Christians have developed forms of daily prayer and worship, centred on the regular reading of Scripture and the recital of the psalms. Such regular spiritual discipline is commended to all, and especially when it is possible for groups of Christians to meet together.

Clergy in particular are expected to follow a personal spiritual discipline and to provide opportunities for other people to join in daily worship where possible. Such a scheme of regular spirituality is provided here.

Individuals or groups may adapt the pattern found here to their own needs. The following are examples of the kind of changes that can be made.

1

Seasonal Variations

In addition to the ‘Alleluia’ provided for use in Eastertide, the seasons of the Church′s year and other festivals may be marked by the use of seasonal sentences at the beginning and end of the service, by a special selection of the Songs of Praise or from the Additional Songs of Praise, or by the insertion of appropriate hymns or other songs.

2

Simplification

(i) When said by one person alone, the opening and closing verse and response may be omitted.
(ii) The material provided may be used to construct a simple pattern: an opening sentence, a New Testament reading, a Song of Praise in a weekly or monthly cycle, and informal prayer.

3

One Service in the Day

The general pattern of the services may be followed in a single service for the day, using either the morning or evening Songs of Praise as set in a fortnightly cycle, or one song of praise in a monthly cycle, as a response to the Psalms and Readings. If the service is said in the middle of the day, the morning or evening collect is omitted, or replaced by an appropriate midday prayer.

The following are common texts for use in
the Daily Services

Confession and Absolution

Almighty and merciful God,
we have sinned against you,
in thought, word and deed.
We have not loved you with all our heart.
We have not loved others as our Saviour Christ loves us.
We are truly sorry.
In your mercy forgive what we have been,
help us to amend what we are,
and direct what we shall be;
that we may delight in your will
and walk in your ways,
through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.

A priest says

Almighty God,
who pardons all who truly repent,
forgive your sins,
strengthen you by the Holy Spirit,
and keep you in life eternal; through Jesus Christ our Redeemer.
Amen.

(A deacon or layperson says ‘us’ and ‘our′instead of ‘you’ and ‘your’.)

Gloria

At the end of the Psalm is said

Glory to the Father and ′ to the ′ Son:
and ′ to the ′ Holy ′ Spirit;
as it was in the be′ginning · is ′ now:
and shall be for ′ ever. ′ A′men.

Or

Kia whakakorōriatia te Matua, te Tama:
me te Wairua Tapu;
ko te ritenga ia i te tīmatanga, ā tēnei anō ināianei:
ā ka mau tonu iho, ā ake ake ake. Āmine.

Or

Or

Korōria ki te Matua, ki te Tama,
ki te Wairua Tapu;
mai i te tīmatanga, ki tēnei wā,
ā, haere ake nei. Āmine.

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.   Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.    Amen.


E tō mātou Matua i te rangi
Kia tapu tōu Ingoa.
Kia tae mai tōu rangatiratanga.
Kia meatia tāu e pai ai
ki runga ki te whenua,
kia rite anō ki tō te rangi.
Hōmai ki a mātou āianei
he taro mā mātou mō tēnei rā.
Murua ō mātou hara,
Me mātou hoki e muru nei
i ō te hunga e hara ana ki a mātou.
Āua hoki mātou e kawea kia whakawaia;
Engari whakaorangia mātou i te kino:
Nōu hoki te rangatiratanga, te kaha,
me te korōria,
Āke ake ake.    Āmine.

and the ′ Word ′ was with ′ God;
2 and the ′ Word was ′ God:
he was ′ in the · be′ginning · with ′ God.
3 All things were ′ made through ′ him:

and the darkness has ′ never ′ over′come it.
6 He was in the world,
and the world was ′ made through ′ him:
yet the ′ world ′ knew him ′ not.
7 He came to his ′ own ′ home:
and his own ′ people · would ′ not re′ceive him.
8 But to all who received him,
who be′lieved · on his ′ name:
he has given power to be′come ′ children · of ′ God.
9 They were born not of blood, nor of the ′ will · of the ′ flesh:
nor of any ′ human · will, ′ but of ′ God.
10 And the ′ Word be·came ′ flesh:
and dwelt among us, ′ full of ′ grace and ′ truth.
11 We have ′ seen his ′ glory:
glory as of the ′ only ′ Son · from the ′ Father.
