The Book of Common Prayer

I have been amazed during my home visitations and especially during this time of personal and home meditations and worship, that many Episcopalians do not have their own copy of The Book of Common Prayer. Say what? EVERY Episcopalian should have their own copy or at least a family copy of our beloved prayer book. Among other things, we are known as Lenten People and as Easter People but Anglicans, especially, are also historically known as Prayer Book People. The Book of Common Prayer is not just a Sunday prayer book that is in the pews for Sunday worship. It was also designed to be used by the people of this faith community for home devotions, meditations and worship. The early vision of the Prayer Book was that it was to be used for the benefit of the church for worship and for the private use by the people. Until you can get your own copy, the download link of The Book of Common Prayer should be useful. The Book of Common Prayer.
