Saint Augustine's Prayer Book is a book of prayer and practice - with disciplines, habits, and patterns for building a Christian spiritual life. It will help you to develop strong habits of prayer, to prepare for and participate in public liturgy thoughtfully, and to nurture a mind and soul ready to work and give and pray for the spread of the kingdom.
Saint Augustine's Prayer Book features "Holy Habits of Prayer," devotions to accompany Holy Eucharist, Stations of the Cross, and Stations of the Resurrection, and a wide range of litanies, collects, and prayers for all occasions. The newly revised edition includes the treasured liturgies and prayers of the original while offering some important updates in language and content.
Originally published by the Order of the Holy Cross in 1947, the name of the book is a reference to St. Augustine of Hippo, the patron saint of the Order of the Holy Cross.
Revised and edited by well-regarded scholars David Cobb and Derek Olsen, this edition is a wonderful gift as well as a handsome addition to your own prayer book collection. Comes leather-bound (black) with two ribbons in a gift box.
Also available on the Amazon Kindle and Apple Books.

This is a must-have prayer book. It is the perfect companion, easy to carry, travels well and has such wonderful prayers and wisdom for daily life. I think if you have one prayer book only, this is the one to have. It is beautiful, leather-bound, gold cross accompanies a Book of Common Prayer or Missal well.The preparation prayers of holy eucharist are really good so it is always with me at service too. I glad I bought it and I think it will also make a great gift.-Rob Nelson
I love my copy of the St. Augustine's Prayer Book. It was gift, and I will always treasure it. Clean lines, easy to read print, a beautiful style, and profound devotions. Even the box it came in, marked with a cross, says there is something special inside. And there is.
-The Rev. Lindsay Hardin Freeman
To this beautiful volume which introduced many to Marian devotion, and which gave expression to a more personal devotion not necessarily found in the BCP, new material e.g. Stations of the Resurrection has been added. The Litany of the Saints is updated to include holy figures from Hebrew Scriptures, the saints of Jesus one might call them, namely Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; Moses, Miriam, and Aaron; Ruth and Naomi. Saints also included are Ignatius of Antioch, Polycarp, Alban. Perpetua and Felicity. Beloved Anglican Saints now includes the pairs: Richard Hooker and Lancelot Andrewes, Nicholas Ferrar and George Herbert, John Keble and Edward Pusey. The updated "Litany of Intercessions in the Night" puts more responsibility on us and is less judgmental. This newly revised edition represents a devotional treasure.
-Dr. Deirdre Good, Academic Dean & Professor of New Testament, General Theological Seminary
A wonderful, thoughtful revision. Thank you Fr.Cobb & Derek for your work on this instructive new edition that is sure to become the favorite of a new generation.
St. Augustine’s Prayer Book is by far my favorite prayer book for personal use. Anglocatholics will love it and if you aren’t Anglocatholic you’ll still find so much beauty and wisdom in its pages and that it’s more than worth the cost. The Holy Hour prayers, reflection questions in morning and evening prayer, the prayer for leaving home, and Percy Dearmer’s Advent prayer (which is really appropriate at any time) are some of my absolute favorites, just to name a few. Plus, it compliments, not competes with, the Book of Common Prayer, meaning you’ll learn more about the Book of Common Prayer and its prayers. 10/10 would recommend. —John Putnam, Children & Youth Minister at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Centennial, CO
