A Service For Use in the Home

Transfiguration

The following service order is for use in the home. It may be lead by a family member, or if you live alone, you may use it by yourself, in which case, simply say all the parts. Of course this is not intended to be a substitute for the Divine Service of the gathered church, but for household devotion and prayer. You may also use the daily prayer orders of Matins, Morning Prayer, Vespers, Evening Prayer, or Compline depending on the time of day. For a simple service order, see Daily Prayer (LSB p. 294ff) .
