Morning Prayer (Anglican)

Morning Prayer (Anglican)

Morning Prayer (also Matins or Mattins), is one of the two main Daily Offices in the churches of the Anglican Communion, prescribed in the various editions of the Book of Common Prayer and other Anglican liturgical texts. Like Evening Prayer (and in contrast to the Eucharist), it may be led by a layperson and is recited by some Anglicans daily in private (clergy in many Anglican jurisdictions are required to do so).

Famous quotes containing the words morning and/or prayer:

    The morning comes to consciousness
    Of faint stale smells of beer
    From the sawdust-trampled street
    With all its muddy feet that press
    To early coffee-stands.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    I have only ever made one prayer to God, a very short one: “O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.” And God granted it.
    Voltaire [Fran├žois Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)
