The book contains the morning, evening, and night prayers of the Liturgy of Hours which are the Catholic Church's only required prayers for those clergy and religious men and women active in the apostolate, as opposed to the monastics who have to pray more at different times (mid-morning, mid-day, mid-afternoon, etc) of the day the Liturgy of the Hours. However, this book is also good for lay people who desire a structured way of praying that resonates, echoes, and harmonizes with the prayers of monks, nuns, priests, and religious men and women all over the globe, at every hour, today and in the past centuries. The book is handy, easy to read and follow, and leatherette bound. A good gift also for people who are spiritually serious.

There are many forms of prayer. This little book provides the kick-start, spiritually, for more formal and regular prayer-living. Centered on the psalms and holy scripture, any Christian or person interested in Christian prayer life can gain much for a small dollar investment. By one and get one for your closest friend. Pray together!

I regularly pray the Liturgy of the Hours on my own and use the 4-volume version. Recently, I began praying with an ecumenical group with other Christian traditions. Morning Prayer has been a very effective way for us to pray together.

Shorter Christian Prayer is an easy-to-use and reasonably priced way for us to pray our morning prayer. This is a must have for anyone looking to pray the psalms in the tradition of the Church!

I enjoy this book completely, were I still have my pitfauts with the larger Christian prayer book this little book helps to make things much easier for me to read and understand. Now I'm still learning about how to use this tiny little book.
but it is fast becoming one of those books that i reach for each morning and evening at prayer time. thanks it is a great little book to have at hand.

As someone just coming to the Catholic faith, I found this prayer book to be a wonderful surprise. It is full of prayers for so many different situations in our lives, from a simple morning prayer to prayers under difficult circumstances. I love the old-fashioned drawings and pictures. The text is large, but I find it makes it really easy to read the prayers aloud with family. This little book is helping me learn how to pray.

The Shorter Christian Prayer book contains the Morning, Evening, and Night Prayers of the Liturgy of the Hours for pretty much the entire year. The edition I had been using was very lovingly used and passed onto me by a friend who wanted a partner in prayer every night. It was the 1988 edition, using an older translation of the New American Bible and the Grail translation of the Psalms.

Recently, I lost the edition he had given me. This was quite a problem, for you see, we pray over the phone. I kind of jury rigged a solution by using the online version of the Liturgy available from Universalis, an online Grail Psalter (because Universalis is radically different lingually), and a few other sites for songs and canticles. It was quite a mess.

I told him I had lost the version he had given me, and I was going to buy a new book because I could not find the old one (someday I will). He was concerned that the new version might not be the same translation as his (which was also the 1988 edition).

Fortunately, this appears to be the same version as the one my friend gave me. It uses the Grail translation of the Psalms, and the 1986 edition of the New American Bible. It even has the same typo in the song "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence".

I give it a 5/5 because this edition is the one my friend is using, and I will be glad not to have to stumble through the evening and night prayers anymore! A newer or older version would not have done me a lick of good. This is JUST the book I needed.

Thanks, SalvoBooks! ;)

This is a nice book for morning and evening prayers. It has a beautiful cover and is the right size to pit into a purse or bag to take on the go. This is a perfect book to start praying the Liturgy Of The Hours.
