My Daily Rule of Prayer and Bible Reading Schedule

 Here is a simple Rule of Prayer I use daily, which I can always practice, even if I am short on time, and with a simple and manageable, but robust, Scripture reading plan.


The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
The Kingdom come, Thy will be done,
In earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
As we forgive those in debt to us.
Save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from the evil one.
For Thine is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory,
Of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
One God, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages,

The Angelic Salutation
Hail Mary, full of grace,
Our Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
And blessed is the fruit of your womb,
Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Holy Virgin Saint Mary, O Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now, and at all times,
And at the hour of our death,

The Symbol of Faith (the Creed)
We believe in One God,
The Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
Of all that is visible and invisible.

We believe in One Lord, Jesus Christ,
The only-begotten Son of God,
Begotten of the Father before all ages,
Light from Light,
True God from True God,
Begotten, not created,
Of One Essence with the Father,
Through Whom all things were made.

Who for us and our salvation,
Came down from heaven,
And was incarnate by
The Holy Spirit and Mary the Virgin,
And became man. 

For our sake, He was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
Suffered, died, and was buried,
And rose on the third day,
According to the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven,
And is enthroned at the right hand of
The Father.

He shall come again in glory,
And judge the living and the dead,
And of His Kingdom there shall be no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
The Lord, the Creator of Life,
Who proceeds from the Father,
Who together with the Father and Son
Is adored and glorified.
He has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one, holy, universal, and apostolic Church,
We confess one Baptism for the remission of sins,
We await the resurrection of the dead,
And the life of the age to come,

Daily Scripture Reading
One Psalm,
One chapter from the Older Testament/Hebrew Scriptures

One chapter from the Newer Testament Acts, Epistles, or Apocalypse
One chapter from the Gospels.
