Prayer at the Close of Day

March 15, 2017

“Prayer at the Close of Day” (also known by its Latin title, “Compline”) is the last of the seven daily prayer services that developed in the medieval Christian church. These daily services, called the “Daily Office,” were most commonly used in monasteries and schools. Several of the services from the Daily Office are enjoying renewed use in the twenty-first century church. Tonight’s service sets the texts of this historic service to modern music. The setting of “Prayer at the Close of Day” we use comes from Christian Worship: New Service Settings. The music is by Dale Witte and was first published in 2002.
