It was perfect
By: Susan - TX
This has been a great aid to prayer when I am on the go, and where doing a full service simply isn't possible.
By: Joshua - Oxford, MI
Admitting my need and obligation to pray four times daily, I have searched for years for "the perfect prayer book"
I wanted it in the format of the service of the hours, but not that long.
I wanted it simple, not needing planning ahead, just "flowing". And I didn't want to have it be expensive and four volumes.
"Hour by Hour" is perfect for me. It has the four elements of the
Daily Office: Morning, Noon and Evening Prayer, and Compline.
As an example, Morning Prayer has an opening sentence, a one
stanza "hymn", a canticle, a psalm, a lesson, a collect, and the grace.
The Lord's Prayer is found in each of the four segments. What is missing is the contrition and repentance of confession; one must infer that in the Lord's Prayer.
This is the Episcopal Office "light", and it suits me just fine; it takes no more than seven minutes, including time
It's four by six and a half inches, about a half inch thick,
printed in type large enough for these old eyes, on off-white
paper, making it easier to read. It's hard-cover faux leather;
the cover is stiff and won't curl.
It's introduced by Dr. Alan Jones, Dean of Grace Cathedral, San
Francisco, and printed by Forward Movement (www.forwardmovement.com) and is priced reasonably at $17.95.

Small enough to tuck inside purse, good quality - the pages are a luxury. The prayers are a wonderful oasis during a hectic or stressful day.

This book was a birthday request from my boyfriend. He was very excited to receive it and commented on how great a book it would be for people who are working or on the go. He uses it daily and I have also used it a few times. I would definitely recommend it. Thanks :-)

This little book is huge in helping to establish a habit for praying the Daily offices.

Hour by Hour is a remarkable discipline that strengthens the practice of regular intercessory and devotional prayer as taught in the early church.It is very useful for contemplative periods in a 21st Century life.
