Morning Prayer Wednesday 20th May 2020

The Anglican practice of saying daily morning and evening #prayer derives from the pre-Reformation canonical hours, of which seven were required to be said in churches and by clergy daily. #Matins, Lauds, Prime, Terce, Sext, None, Vespers, and #Compline. #Prayer started at dawn and finished at midnight.

This practice derived from the earliest centuries of #Christianity, and ultimately from the pre-Christian hours of prayer observed in the Jewish temple.
