Shorter Outline for Daily Devotions

GLORIA PATRI. Sing or say,

Glory be to the Father
and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost,
as it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen, amen.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION. Ask God to search your heart and life, and confess any sinful thoughts, words, or deeds to him.


I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary:
Suffered under Pontius Pilate;
was crucified, died, and was buried:
He descended to the dead:
On the third day he rose again from the dead:
He ascended into heaven,
and sits at the right hand of the Father:
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead:

I believe in the Holy Spirit:
the holy catholic church:
the communion of saints:
The forgiveness of sins:
The resurrection of the body:
And the life everlasting. Amen.

SCRIPTURE READING. Complete one day in a Bible reading plan.


Our Father, who is in heaven,
hallowed be your name;
your kingdom come;
your will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

FURTHER PRAYER. Pray for your family, church, and world.
