The word 'Agpeya' is a Coptic (ancient Egyptian) word meaning “Book of Hours.” This book is a guide for our personal prayer life. The Agpeya is primarily used by the Coptic Orthodox Church. It contains prayers for seven different hours to be said throughout the day. The hours are chronologically laid out, each containing a theme corresponding to events in the life of our Lord Jesus Christ. Each hour is composed of an introduction which includes the Lord’s Prayer, the Prayer of Thanksgiving, and Psalm 50. It is followed by various Psalms, an excerpt from the Holy Gospel, and Litanies. Lord Have Mercy is then chanted 41 times (representing the 39 lashes Christ received before the crucifixion, plus one for the spear in His side, plus one for the crown of thorns), followed by several other prayers and a conclusion.The audio version of this prayer book is available in the 'Coptic Hymns in English' app. This book is produced by the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States.
