About this app

Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals helps today’s diverse church pray together across traditions and denominations with morning, midday, and evening prayers for every day of the year. With an ear to the particulars of how various liturgical traditions pray, this app offers a tapestry of prayer that celebrates the best of many traditions.

Liturgy comes to life as you tap on song titles in the Common Prayer app and sing along with the new monastic Rutba House community of Durham, North Carolina.

Following the 12 Marks of New Monasticism, this app also offers guidance for putting faith into action each month, complete with links to further reading that will deepen your understanding of how God is at work in the world.

Ultimately, Common Prayer makes liturgy dance, taking the best of the old and bringing new life to it with a fresh fingerprint for the contemporary renewal of the church. Churches and individuals who are familiar with with Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove will enjoy a video in which the two of them introduce this app and invite users to pray along with them, the communities, and New Monastics around the world.

I wonderful balance between traditional and modern wording. I've found this application has rejuvenated my prayer life. While I haven't read their book, I plan to soon. My only complaint is that there aren't any sources listed for where the prayers came from. I am new to liturgical prayer and haven't grown up in a high church environment, it would be useful to see where the various prayers etc. are sourced. Thanks for a wonderful app!

I have the pocket edition book and found it useful but difficult to remember to pray. Having it in my pocket all day and the ablitity to have notifications at the appropriate times really helps. Also, would love if the compline prayer from the pocket edition could be added to the app in the future.

I attend an Episcopal church, but identify as more Anglo-Catholic. Typically I just utilize a hard copy of the 1979 BCP, but I'm really enjoying this app! It's handy to have if I'm not home during the day. One small critique is that I'd prefer the hymn keep playing if I turn my phone screen off. 😊

What's new

This update includes special morning prayers for several days during Holy Week. They are included in the print book, but it took some serious code to calculate the date of Easter each year so we could also include them in the app!
