In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
Glory to You, our God, Glory to You!
O Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, You are everywhere and fill all things.,
Treasury of blessings, and Giver of life: come and abide in us, cleanse us from every impurity, and save our souls O Good One!
Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your great mercy; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin!
For I know my transgressions and my sin is ever before me.
Against You, You only, have I sinned and done that which is evil in Your sight, so that You are justified in Your sentence and blameless in Your judgment.
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity and in sins did my mother conceive me.
Behold, You desire truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.
Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.
Fill me with joy and gladness; let the bones which You have broken rejoice.
Hide Your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from Your presence and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.
Then I will teach transgressors Your ways and sinners will return to You.
Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of Your deliverance.
Lord, open my lips and my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
For You have no delight in sacrifice; were I to give a burnt offering, You would not be pleased.
The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
Do good to Zion in Your good pleasure; rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.
Then You will delight in a sacrifice of righteousness, in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings; then bulls will be offered on Your altar.
Evening Prayer to Christ
Grant rest, Master, to our souls and bodies as we sleep; preserve us from the gloomy slumber of sin and from the dark passions of the night. Calm the impulses of carnal desires; quench the fiery darts of the evil one, which are craftily directed against us. Still the rebellions of the flesh and put far from us all anxiety and worldly cares.
Grant us, O God, a watchful mind, pure thoughts, a sober heart, and a quiet rest free from every vision of the devil. Raise us up again at the hour of prayer, strengthened in Your holding within us steadfastly the thought of Your commandments.
Grant that we may sing praises to You through the night, and that we may hymn, bless and glorify Your all-honorable and majestic name, of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen
Prayer of Intercession
Forgive, O Lord, those who hate us and treat us unjustly. Do good to those who do good.
Grant our brethren and families their requests which are for salvation and eternal life.
Visit those who are ill and grant them healing.
Watch over those at sea and accompany those who travel.
Be an ally to our armed forces and to those in authority.
Grant remission of sins to those who serve us and are kind to us.
Be merciful according to Your great mercy to those who have asked us to pray for them, unworthy though we be.
Remember, O Lord, our fathers and brethren who have fallen asleep before us and grant them rest where the light of Your countenance shines.
Remember, O Lord, those who are in captivity and deliver them from every distress.
Remember, O Lord, those who bring offerings and do good in Your holy Churches and grant them their requests which are for salvation and eternal life.
Remember us, Your sinful and unworthy servants, O Lord, and enlighten our minds with the light of Your knowledge, guiding us along the way of Your commandments, by the intercessions of Your immaculate Mother, our Lady Theotokos and ever-virgin Mary, and of all Your saints. For You are blessed to the ages of ages. Amen
To the Theotokos
Exceedingly glorious and ever-virgin Theotokos; Bring our petitions before your Son, and our God, and implore Him that through you He will save our souls. Amen
To the Guardian Angel
Holy Angel, companion of my soul and my whole life, do not abandon me nor depart from me because of my weakness and sin.
Do not allow the wicked demon to overcome me by the oppression of this mortal body.
Restrain and strengthen me and guide me in the way of salvation.
O Holy Angel of God, guardian and protector of my wretched soul and body, forgive me everything in which I have grieved you all the days of my life, and in which I have sinned in the day just past.
Protect me during the coming night and keep me from every influence of the enemy, that I may not anger God in any sin. Intercede for me to the Lord that He may strengthen me in His fear and make me worthy to be a servant of His goodness. Amen
Through the prayers of our holy fathers, O Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen
