Book of Common Prayer


I read my prayer book often, and my Bible only on holy days - the prayer book is so much more orderly.

A Prayer for Owen Meany (1989) by John Irving

The Book of Common Prayer is used in the Anglican Communion. The original Prayer Book was produced by Archbishop Cranmer and issued for use in all English churches in 1549. The book translated Latin services into English and was intended to be a unified and simplified equivalent of the Roman Catholic liturgical books. Used with the Bible and an authorized hymnal, it provided all of the formularies for Anglican worship, from morning and evening prayers and the liturgy of Holy Communion to the rites for the sacraments and visitation of the sick.

It has been adaptated in the churches of the Anglican Communion throughout the world. The last revision for the Episcopal Church was adopted in 1979.
