Prayer books available in English
*''A Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians'' (published by [http://www.thehtm.org/ Holy Transfiguration Monastery], Brookline, MA): comparable to the Jordanville ''Prayer Book'', but follows Greek usage as found in common ''Proseuchetarion''; contains Morning Prayers and Prayers at Mealtime, the services of Small Compline, Vespers, Matins, and the Divine Liturgy, together with the principle hymns of the feasts of the year, and the complete Service of Pascha. Also included are the Akathists to our Sweet Lord Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Theotokos, a supplicatory canon to our Lord Jesus Christ, both the Small and Great Supplicatory Canons to the Most Holy Theotokos, a supplicatory canon to the Guardian Angel, and the Communion Prayers. ISBN 0943405017 ISBN 978-0943405018
*''An Orthodox Prayer Book'', Second Edition, by Archimandrite Ephrem (Lash), published by Nigel Lynn Publishing on behalf of the [http://www.thyateira.org.uk Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain;]bilingual Greek/modern English edition following the settings of Greek morning prayers, evening prayers and small [[Compline]] as found in the ''Synekdemos''. This translation is harmonious with the Oxford University Press edition of the ''Divine Liturgy'' (published with the blessing of the [[Ecumenical Patriarch]]) and with the wide range of liturgical material published on Fr Ephrem's [http://anastasis.org.uk web-site]. Copies are available at the office of the Archdiocese of Thyateira. ISBN 0191224472 ISBN 9780191224478
*''The Old Orthodox Prayer Book'', or as it is commonly referred to, "The [[Old Believers|Old Believer]] Prayer Book": This prayer book has a lot of useful instructional material, and a lot of services that are set up such that they can be done as reader services (such as a [[Moleben]]). It also has the [[Church Slavonic|Slavonic]] text and the English text on facing pages. The disadvantage to it is the Slavonic text is not the standard text used by the Church (being the Old Rite) and so it differs in wording and often in structure. Nevertheless, it is quite useful. This prayer book was produced for use by the Old Rite community in Erie, Pennsylvania (ROCOR).
