In responce to a question I got in my guest book I will make a statement of what Matins (and Vespers) is. They are liturgical prays of the day, there are 7 prayer offices. They are
Matins
Lauds
Terce
Sext
None
Vespers
Compline


My church, First Trinity Lutheran Church,
offers Matins Sunday, and Tuesday thur Friday
My church also offers Saterday night Vespers
These are liturgical prayer offices. When I am at home I use both “The Lutheran Hymnal” and the “The Daily Office” edited by Herbert Lindemann (CPH 1961, very hard to get a copy of this book)

Matins (from TLH) follows this order as typed up at the folks at lutheranhymnal.com

I will also pray them at home myself. Using both TLH and TDO
