An edited form of the Catholic order for morning and evening prayer.
'Shorter Morning & Evening Prayer' is part of the Divine Office range, and is an edited version of 'Morning and Evening Prayer'. It is designed specifically for people who want to pray alone and are seeking a regular, structured cycle of prayer. Being just the bare bones of the Divine Office, it will not be as daunting for the novice reader to get to grips with. As the user's prayer life matures, they then have the foundation to allow them to move on to the fuller Divine Office. It includes the same four-week cycle of the fuller Office with Psalms, Scripture Readings and Intercessions.
