I, too, agree with most of what Arimethea and PeterTheAleut stated in the previous posts. I started learning the order of the church services and how to put together the services when I was in my early teens from the choir director ("Prof") in my parish. He taught me Church Slavonic and how to read the Slavonic Typikon. He learned from his choir director in Europe. (Much information is available today, especially with the internet. However, not everything can be learned from reading. Much information is passed down by word of mouth along with the books.) Thirty something years later, I still don't know everything and would never consider myself an expert in the Typikon.
You don't list a faith in your profile but from what I can gather, you are not Orthodox. The Orthodox Church has no equivalent of the Roman Catholic 4 volume "Liturgy of the Hours" or the Anglican "Book of Common Prayer". So, for an individual to try to pray the Orthodox Divine Office alone is difficult, if not impossible. I am sure it is not even encouraged. Our Divine Office is a common office, not a private devotion. Certainly, it is commendable to try to pray the Divine Office but even anchorites and hermits tend to pray the psalter or the Jesus prayer instead of the Divine Office when they are alone.
If you feel the need to pray the hours, a suggestion would be to obtain a copy of a little book called "A Manual of the Hours of the Orthodox Church". It is compiled by Archimandrite Cherubin, Monastery of the Paraclete, Attica, Greece and prepared by the Holy Myrrbears Monastery in Otego, NY. It contains excerpts from the canonical hours (generally 1 or 2 psalms and a prayer). It is all of 4" x 6" and is convenient to carry. I keep a copy in my brief case and at work, if I'm not in a meeting or involved with something, I will attempt to read the excerpt for the appropriate hour. It may take no more than 5-10 minutes but as my spiritual father has said, "It is the pause that refreshes"
Good luck to you on your journey to the eternal homeland!
