One Rakah of Namaz

The rules of chivalry require chevaliers to perform the Divine Office (the liturgy of hours) regularly and preferably together whenever possible. These words in red are the rubrics. Words in black are the liturgics. In general, Chalcedonians have more liturgics compared to Monophysites. But Monophysites have better rubrics.

The Divine Office Hours
One of these is said with the Fajr/Typicon:
00:00am / Matin-Lauds / the 9th PM Hour
04:00am / Prime / the 1st AM Hour
06:00am / Terce / the 3rd AM Hour
09:00pm / Saxt / the 6th AM Hour
Then all of these are said:
12:00 / Zohar/Noon / the 9th AM Hour
15:00 / Asr/Vespers / 1st PM Hour
18:00 / Maarib/Compline / 3rd PM Hour
21:00 / the Isha/Matin-Nocturns/Midnight Office of Lectionary / 6th PM Hour

All worship should be in Tones on one of 
the Melodic-Aeolian (Diatonic), 
or Lydian (Enharmonic), 
or Phrygian (Soft Chromatic), 
or Hard-Chromatic scales.

(Before leaving your room and again when you return to your room always say both halves:)

(touch ash or holy water with right index finger)
In the name of the divine Father (touch forehead with right index finger),
of the merciful Son (touch feet with right index finger),
of the kind Holy (touch right shoulder with right index finger)
Spirit. (touch left shoulder with right index finger)

(Always face East if there is no shrine to face and call to worship saying:)
Through the prayers of our holy Fathers, Adon Yeshuah Mashiakh our God, have mercy on us.

(raising hands in praise)
Glory to Thee, our God, glory to Thee.

(standing upright with hands crossing ones breast)
(+) God be merciful to us a sinner.
(+) Thou hast created us; Lord, have mercy on us.
(+) We have sinned immeasurably; Lord, have mercy and forgive us, sinners. (bowing afterwards)
(standing upright with hands crossing ones breast)
It is truly meet to bless thee, O Theotokos (the Holy Spirit), the ever-blessed and most immaculate, Barer of our God.
More honorable than the Cherubim, and beyond compare more glorious than the Seraphim, thee who without defilement gave birth to God the Word, the true Barer of God thee do we magnify.
(PROSTRATE with forehead to the back of hands making a heart on podruchki. Remember, paradise is at the feet of your Mother. Silently recite Luke 1:28-31. Then stand upright.)

(the above first-half Namaz is also said when you enter a shrine)

(standing upright with hands crossing ones breast)
(+) Glory to the Lah, and to the Rahman, and to the Rahim,
(+) Now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amenu.
(+) Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. Lord, bless. (bowing afterwards)
(standing upright with hands crossing ones breast)
Adon Yeshuah Mashiakh, Unique Son of God, for the prayers of Thy most pure Mother, for the power of Thy precious and life-giving Cross, (or, if at a shrine "and the prayers of Thy holy Saint whose shrine this is") for the intercessions of our holy Guardian Angels, and of all Thy saints, Adon Yeshua Mashiakh Unique Son of God, have mercy on us, forgive and save us sinners, for Thou art good and lovest mankind.(+) 
(PROSTRATE with forehead to the back of hands making a heart on podruchki. Silently recite Matt 6:9-13. Finally, sit and meditate silently on the oneness of the trinity in the Creed with right index finger making the sign of the cross on your right knee to complete seven times as needed. Then bless anyone with you with the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ to your left or right.)

(the above second-half is also said when you leave a shrine)

Be diligent yo visit a shrine at least once a day.
