(Yet) Another Word from Our Sponsors

Preces: Brief responsive prayers which are often based on verses of scripture, especially the Psalter (Psalms). The Book of Common Prayer includes such versicles and responses after the Lords’ Prayer in Morning Prayer (pages 55, 97-98) and Evening Prayer (pages 67-68, 121-122), which are also known as suffrages. The Book of Common Prayer offices (Morning and Evening Prayer) also have opening preces (see S33 and S58 in Hymnal 1982).
