Authorize Daily Prayer for All Seasons
Resolved, the House of _______
concurring, That the 77th
General Convention authorize liturgical materials entitled "Daily
Prayer for All Seasons," found in the Blue Book report
of the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music, for publication
and distribution by Church Publishing Incorporated for experimental
use by individuals and in congregations and other church groups
wishing to pray or meditate throughout the day.
Proposer: Standing Commission on Liturgy
Just as the Book of Common Prayer
is threaded throughout with familiar scripture, this new resource
draws heavily on the collects, rhythms and patterns that those
who have used and love the BCP's daily office will recognize.
This new resource is intended as a complement to the Daily Offices
and Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families in the 1979
BCP, to encourage individuals and small groups, particularly
those not already using the full Daily Offices, to take time
to pray during the day.
