Daily Prayers And Devotions
©2010 James Dacey, Jr. SFO
As week comes to a close let look upon another daily prayer devotion that maybe of interest to you. I'm sure many of you have heard of The Liturgy of The Hours. That is probably one of the most wonderful daily devotions that I have been involved in. It is in book form, but also know that you can come online each day throughout the day and pray The Liturgy of The Hours.
GENERAL INSTRUCTION OF THE LITURGY OF THE HOURS
I really hope these resources have become a blessing in your own private prayer life. I cherish my personal private prayer time with my Lord and sharing is so wonderful. Literally everything can be done online to locate the readings and learn more about, sometimes we just need someone to lead the way. That link above is the exact document that is in the front of my Liturgy of The Hours book. And now I will further direct you to an ONLINE version, where you can go to for daily prayers. Seriously check out this link, I refer to it a lot. If you are a Prayer Warrior like me, then you will really enjoy this link.
Universalis on the Web
That is the direct link to bring you to the current days readings, no matter what day you click on it.
Now do you see the top of the screen..(this below here)

You have prayers for the entire day available to you, simple chose a time of day (Morning Prayer) and then click (Terce) or (Sext) for different times in the morning for prayers.And (None) is for noon-time prayers..
Today I hope to help direct anyone seeking more structured prayer to follow, find it here through this precious links.

Now that link even more fun, you will feel like you are amongst others, just put on your headset and enjoy prayer time throughout the day.
The Angelus holds a very special in my own personal prayer life, this was one of the first real true daily devotions that began in my life over 27 years ago. Simple pray that little prayer everyday.
V — The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R — And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.
V — Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R — Be it done unto me according to thy word.
V — And the Word was made Flesh.
R — And dwelt among us.
V — Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R — That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
LET US PRAY: Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we to whom the incarnation of Christ, your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection. Through the same Christ our Lord.
Pray Always - "Jesus, I Trust You."
Your brother in Christ Jesus & His Most Blessed Mother,
