This article is the first in a series of articles on The Book of Common Prayer authorized for the use of the Reformed Episcopal Church in 1874. It was the first Prayer Book of the newly formed Church. Like the 1786 Proposed Book of Common Prayer and the 1789 Book of Common Prayer of the Protestant Episcopal Church, the 1874 Book of Common Prayer of the Reformed Episcopal Church was a local adaptation of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. This article briefly examines the Order for Morning Prayer of the 1874 Prayer Book, and compares it with the 1786 and 1789 Prayer Books.

Note: After repeated unsuccessful attempts to post the article on the Heritage Anglican Network, I was forced to post it on  Exploring An Anglican Prayer Book (2008). If you have not read the other articles on Exploring An Anglican Prayer Book (2008), you may wish to. In a number of these articles I have examined how the 1928 Book of Common Prayer has moved the American Prayer Book away from the Biblical and Reformation theology of the 1662 Prayer Book and its predecessors, the 1552, 155, and 1604 Prayer Books, and revived the unreformed Catholic theology of the pre-Reformation medieval service books. This is why I maintain that any Anglican church body that is truly committed to the Bible and the Reformation would not use the 1928 Prayer Book or recommend it for use. You may post comments on the Heritage Anglican Network or Exploring An Anglican Prayer Book (2008). But if you post a comment on Exploring An Anglican Prayer Book (2008), please also post it on the Heritage Anglican Network.
