Psalter Group Reading Assignments {Lent 2012}

Listed below are the assigned readings for the Psalter Prayer group for Great Lent 2o12.   I know this post is a bit lengthy but here is a lot of important information here, so please read through the entire post.  Thank you so much for  your patience. 

Names are numbered in order of where you begin, i.e. which Kathisma.  If you’re following along in your Bible, the Psalms included in each kathisma are written directly next to each number.


Day 1–1-8 (Kathisma 1).  Today, February 27, number 1’s in each group will read Psalms 1-8, which is Kathisma 1 in The Psalter.

Please note:  If you’re joining in later, you’ll need to count the number of days from today and then count where you would be if you had started today.  For instance, if you’re five days late, and were to begin on kathisma 10, you would begin on kathisma 15.  If you have any questions, feel free to let me know.  🙂

The most beautiful thing about this group is that between all of us, the entire Psalter gets read 2 1/2 time every single day and we read it twice individually throughout Great Lent.   What a blessing!

Before beginning to read your assigned kathisma, please recite the Trisagion prayers:

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
O heavenly King, O Comforter, the Spirit of truth, who art in all places and fillest all things; Treasury of good things and Giver of life: Come and dwell in us and cleanse us from every stain, and save our souls, O gracious Lord.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal: have mercy on us. (Thrice)
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
All-holy Trinity, have mercy on us. Lord, cleanse us from our sins. Master, pardon our iniquities. Holy God, visit and heal our infirmities for thy Name’s sake.
Lord, have mercy. (Thrice)
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Through the prayers of our holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.   

At the end of each day’s reading, please recite the following:

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia. Glory to you, O God. (twice)

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Glory to you, O God our hope, O Lord, glory to You.
Lord have mercy on (read the names of all the people in your group).

St. Arsenios of Cappadocia used the Psalter as a Book of Needs. For a list of “needs” the Psalms can be read for, click here.

*PLEASE NOTE: Even though we began our readings already, I will continue adding people to the list as they come. So if anyone is interested simply leave your baptismal name and email address and I will add you to the list.   Thank you.
