Christ spent a great deal of his own ministry actively healing. The Church has always been called to continue that healing ministry.
The Book of Common Prayer
Words to our liturgy are found in The Book of Common Prayer (BCP). Reviewing the book, one will find both prayers for daily use and prayers for the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
The Book of Common Prayer has evolved over the years. The first Prayer Book is attributed to Thomas Cranmer who in 1549 drew on traditional resources to create services that were prayed in English for the first time. This collection of both prayers and responses provides the basic structure for the current Prayer Book being used in the Episcopal Church. The version in use today was last revised in 1979.
