‘This book brings deep reflections which can help all of us understand more of the prayer which is at the heart of the church and is a gift to those who seek to know God and follow our Lord Jesus Christ.’

The Very Revd Andrew Nunn, Dean of Southwark Cathedral

Daily Prayer and Divine Office offers a simple introduction to a scripture-based form of prayer used by clergy, Religious and some lay people as part of their spiritual discipline. Many are unaware of this structured form of prayer, or think it is not intended for them, and it’s likely that few have received any instruction in its benefits. This book, based on no particular version of the Office, seeks to reveal the riches of this form of prayer for all.

John-Francis Friendship entered Religious Life in 1976, after a business career, spending 25 years with the (Anglican) Society of St Francis. During this time he was ordained to the priesthood and, for 10 years, was a parish priest. He is now a member of the Franciscan Third Order and lives with his partner in London whilst continuing to offer a priestly ministry. He leads Quiet Days and Retreats and has published three books.
