How to Pray the LOH?


#1

I 've had the one volume book of Christian Prayer for about 3 years now, but I don’t know how to pray it. I’d appreciate it if someone would explain how to pray the Liturgy of the Hours, where I begin, what I do with all those different colored ribbons, etc.

I’m mostly interested in knowing how to pray the morning and evening prayers.

Here you can find a guide that will help you pray Christian Prayer:

stfrancisdesales.com/prayer.php

Perhaps if you hear it prayed that will help as well, you will find pod casts of Evening and Morning Prayers. liturgyofthehours.org/gift-shop/christian-prayer (In the dark blue area.)

When you get familiar with it you will realize why you need all the ribbon markers :slight_smile:

NB: That guide is for the CBP edition. If you have the DoSP edition, you may need to contact them for a printed ordo.

Other practical advise: Find someone (parish, religious community, friend, et cetera) with whom you can pray and learn.
