Psalter Group Reading Assignments {Great Lent 2013}

Here are the assigned readings for the Psalter Prayer group for Great Lent 2013. Names are numbered in order of where you begin.

*Be sure to look through all the lists for your name. It will be as you signed up. There are a lot of Mary’s, Maria’s, Katherine’s, etc. Make sure you’re looking at the right one! I included usernames or emails wherever I could to make it a bit easier, too.

Also, I’m going to be doing something new this year. I am going to be periodically posting various writings on the benefits of reading the Psalter. Some of the things I’ve read so far are absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to share them with you! So be sure to check back for those.

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 kathisma 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 (name of each person in your group).

People in group 3 and soon to be group 4, please check back periodically since more people will most likely be added to your group, so you can add their names to your prayer list. And as always, if you have any questions at all, let me know!

Don’t become discouraged if you miss some, it takes time to build a habit and anything you read is more than you would have read if you hadn’t signed up! Kali Dynami!

    • Thank y.ou ! I enjoy knowing that I am praying the Psalms every day with all the others. Praying for those in my group reminds me that even though I don’t know their needs, God does. I am humbled by His infinite Grace and Mercy.

    Please add my name to ur Psalter list. Thank u…
    God bless u.

  11. please can someone explain me about the kathisma i dont know how it goes.thank yoiu.

    • Orthodox Mom says:

      Fotini, i know it sounds complicated but it’s very simple! You begin on the number by your name. You read that Kathisma or group of Psalms. Then the next day, you read the next and continue in that fashion. When we finish, we begin again. Since everyone starts off on a different one, the entire Psalter is read every day all throughout Lent, twice! For example, I started on Kathisma 18 on Monday, Tuesday I read 19, Wednesday 20, and today I start at the beginning, with Kathisma 1. Does that help? If not, don’t hesitate to ask more questions! :) Glad you’re joining us!

  12. Shelley Armstrong says:

    Sylvia,

    Shelley (macrina)

  13. can I be added to group four, please…

  14. Please add me in for Group 4. Thank you for organizing this!

  15. Is it possible to still join? I realize I am late, but would love to be a part of this! I am lacking in terms of a good church community where I live and this is just what I need for this lent!

    Thank you!!
