Prayer Schedule: Morning and Evening

One thing I think is very important, especially so for discerners, is a constant, regular prayer schedule. I have been developing my own prayer schedule recently and so this is a 'formula' as such to help you develop your own prayer schedule. I have designed it very much as a guide and it is designed to allow itself to be customised and adapted to individual preferences and needs. You can make your schedule as long or as short as you like by selecting different prayers from the options suggested and adding in additional prayers. I give suggestions at the very end to add to the basic skeletons I have created. I don't have concluding prayers here because I think people often have their own ways of ending prayer or would prefer to have time for open-ended prayer. If you don't, I suggest looking up the Divine Office (try here) and see if one of the concluding prayers there appeals to you.

The names of the prayers in the formula are all links to the text of the prayer. So far this is the schedule for morning and evening. I plan to add more for prayer during the day and possibly a schedule for prayer on Sundays and holy days.
