Many people want to "take on" a discipline for Lent rather than "give up" something. One of the disciplines that many Episcopalians--and other Christians--wistfully think about taking on is the regimen of structured daily prayer that includes the course-reading of Scripture. Forty Days: The Daily Office for Lent offers an accessible, doable, toe-in-the-water introduction to the private recitation of Morning and/or Evening Prayer .


  • Rite Two morning and evening prayer the Book of Common Prayer
  • The collects, and all Bible readings for both lectionary years, from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday
  • The Psalter as prescribed and edited for each day in Lent
  • An office proper for St. Joseph [March 19] and the Annunciation [March 25]
