Morning Prayer, Lauds - Audio Liturgy of the Hours by DivineOffice.org
By Surgeworks, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Divine Office App is The Best Catholic iPhone and iPad App [About.com Reader's Choice Awards 2011]. This app is an opportunity for you to participate in the recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours: the public prayer of the Christian community.
This audio Liturgy of the Hours Morning Prayer (Lauds) App is your first opportunity to be present with God, recall Christ’s resurrection and immerse yourself in the tranquility of the hour before the complexities and noise of the day flood in.
This App is an audio version of the official set of morning daily prayers from the Liturgy of the Hours of the Roman Catholic Church (Breviary). It wirelessly downloads several days of prayers at a time, without the need for iTunes synchronization or access to a computer.
If you are unable to pray in community, but love the contentment of praying with others, an added feature of The Morning Prayer App lets you view locations where other Christians around the world are simultaneously praying with you.
For Clergy required to pray the Liturgy of the Hours daily, or Laity who recite the daily prayers to maintain their intimate connection with God, The Morning Prayer App is designed to make praying more convenient, enjoyable, and simple enough for anyone to use. It automatically downloads the appropriate prayers for every day of the year including Solemnities and many feast days.
The Morning Prayer App uses the current four-volume Liturgy of the Hours with a bias towards the USA calendar. This version is the official prayer book of the Catholic Church, however, it is suitable for those following Eastern Orthodox and Anglican traditions.
When St. Paul advises us in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to “pray without ceasing,” he intends more than simply bowing our heads and speaking to God on a regular basis. He means for us to adopt an ongoing attitude of prayer that is a way of life and a constant intercession for the salvation of all mankind.
As the mystical body of Christ prays in unison, it fulfills what Paul advises as Christian conduct, that believers at once pray for the good of themselves, their neighbors, and the world. In this way, prayers become liturgy, a way to fulfill our divine calling and a practical approach for addressing the suffering of the world.
The Morning Prayers are also available free from our website at www.DivineOffice.org or our podcast called Divine Office. Thank you for supporting our ministry by your purchase. Look for our other apps:

I am a catholic singer/songwriter, happily married with four children. My life is pretty busy and balancing domestic life with ministry has not been easy. Keeping a personal relationship with God has not been easy; however with this application I have found a simple yet incredibly rich way to "keep in touch" with my Lord and in communion with His universal church. This is one of the best ways to pray when on the run. It is a slow motion pause to be nourished by His Word and to be lifted up by the songs of praise. I am very grateful for this great application and recommend it everywhere I go. God bless the persons involved in its development!!! Happy and proud to be catholic, Sara
Best App Ever
I have used this app for over four years now and it has been so very helpful! It's been especially helpful while traveling in Europe. I can download it and just listen on my headset while my fellow travelers sleep. And when I'm too tired to pray along I can listen to others and their prayers lift me back up until I have the strength to pray again. This App and the people who produce it have been a wonderful gift!
Please have it turn off automatically when audio is finished
I love this app. Sometimes I listen to the night prayer and it doesn't turn off after it has completed. I have fallen asleep and several hours later when I wake up my phone is still bright even though the night prayer is finished.
Please set it so that when the office is complete it will turn off.
Thank you very much.
