Family Morning and Evening Prayer

Does your family struggle to pray together? We have good news! Posted here is an abbreviated version of Family Morning and Evening Prayer adapted from An English Prayer Book (The Church Society, 1994) and The 1662 Book of Common Prayer: International Edition (IVP Academic 2021).

Both abbreviated versions of Morning and Evening Prayer follow Thomas Cranmer's gospel-shaped pattern of guilt, grace and gratitude. Cranmer understood that the principle of lex orandi, lex credendi is of great importance. In other words how we pray (lex orandi, the content of our prayers) shapes what we believe (lex credendi).
