daily prayer and prayer resources on the internet
Steve Benner and Simon KershawA valuable source of liturgical material, oremus is a form of daily Christian prayer published on the Internet, and also contains various other resources for prayer and worship.
oremus follows a common pattern for daily prayer, used by various groups for nearly two thousand years. The heart of the office is the recitation of the psalter and the reading of the bible, with prayers of thanksgiving and intercession. oremus normally consists of an opening formula, including a short sentence from a non-scriptural source, then the psalm and bible reading. This is usually followed by a hymn and then the prayers concluding with a collect and the Lord's Prayer. Finally comes a concluding sentence.
