Psalter Group Reading Assignments {Nativity 2013}

Here are the assigned readings for the Psalter Prayer group for Nativity 2013 groups. 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.  So PLEASE read through the whole list until you’re sure you found your name.  If you’re not positive, leave a comment and I will clarify. 

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.  I hoped to do this more during the Great Lent readings but didn’t get the chance so hopefully I’ll have some extra time this time around.

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 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!

  2. Jill Mary Machado says:

    Oh dear! I had asked to join the list-perhaps my comment didn’t go through, is there any way to get on the list a bit late?

    Jill (Mary) Machado

    • Orthodox Mom says:

      Just added you!! Not sure what the deal is with the comments lately. There was a recent upgrade and I’m wondering if that made things a bit wonky. Sorry for any inconvenience!

  3. If it’s not late too late for me too, I would love to take part! Thanks so much.

    Elena

  4. I hope it’s not too late to join! Please add me! Baptismal name; Kathryn

  5. I think there was more than one Kimberly (I was the one between Iona and Elizabeth (Lisa)). Could I be added in?

    • Orthodox Mom says:

      You are the only Kimberly! :) right? Don’t look at where you are in the comments because I sometime have to move names around!

      • Group 2 it is! I do know there was also a Kimberly Hancock, but we can share. :)

        • Orthodox Mom says:

          Ok, I just checked the signups and there are two Kimberly’s! I’m so sorry! You’ll be number 17 in group Four. Which means today you’ll be on be on kathisma 18. Sorry for the mixup, this gets really confusing for me sometimes!

  6. Evangelia McBroom says:

    Evangelia McBroom

  12. Evangelia McBroom says:

    What to do if you get behind a day or so? Read all you missed in one day or just start from where you left off? With all the kids activities at school, homework and Dr visits have gotten behind! First time doing something like this too!

    • Orthodox Mom says:

      Evangelia, Don’t stress if you miss a day, just continue with wherever you are supposed to be. If you can read the ones you missed, that’s awesome. If not, don’t worry. I always tell people not to be too hard on themselves with this, it is a huge blessing to be reading the Psalms together and therefore the devil will put many obstacles in our way! Keep trudging through them! :)

  13. Hi Sylvia,
    Could you please joun me in too? Christina (Christy) .. Thank you +
