“Seven times a day I praise you.” – Psalm 118(119):164

“Seven times a day I praise you.” – Psalm 118(119):164
The Lord has commanded us to pray without ceasing, and this is what the Hours help us do.
Morning Prayer – at the start of the day’s work and the coming of the light.
Daytime Prayer – at mid-morningnoon and in the afternoon, to unite us with the one for whom and through whom we are working.
Evening Prayer – at the end of the day’s work, to offer up what he have done.
Night Prayer – last thing at night, to commend our souls to God.
And finally, there is the magnificent Office of Readings, at whatever time of day is best for us to reflect on the mystery of salvation, with the help of Scripture and the writings of the Fathers of the Church.
