Daily Prayer

In the season of Lent 2018, several leaders at Freeborn Church have committed to praying the “Daily Office” of Morning Prayer (Matins) and Evening Prayer (Vespers).  Mostly we will do this on our own, though we will gather in the Old Chapel at Freeborn on Tuesdays at 4pm for Evening Prayer and Thursdays at 9am for Morning Prayer.  All are welcome to join us.

Links to prayer texts are below. When you come to the Psalms and Readings, clicking the link will take you to the week’s readings. You can look these up in your Bible, or each day also has a link to the Bible text online.
