Brief responsive prayers which are often based on verses of scripture, especially the Psalter. The BCP includes such versicles and responses after the Lord's Prayer in Morning Prayer (pp. 55, 97-98) and Evening Prayer (pp. 67-68, 121-122), which are also known as suffrages. The BCP offices also have opening preces (see S 33, S 58 in The Hymnal 1982.)
