I Cross My Face
I cross my face and all of myself by the sign of the cross.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; One God. In the Holy Trinity believing and entrusting myself, I deny you satan in front of my mother the Holy Church, who is my witness, St. Mary Tsion forever. Amen
We thank you O Lord, and we glorify you, we praise you O Lord, and we rely on you, we beg you and we beseech you. We worship you and we serve to your Holy name. We bow and kneel down to you; O you to whom all knees should bow and who all tongues serve. You are the God of gods and the Lord of lords and the King of kings. You are God to all flesh and to all souls, and we call you as your Holy Son taught us saying 'But when you pray you shall say"
The Lord's Prayer
Our father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name, Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth as it is in Heaven: give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us and rescue us from all evil for thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Prayer to St. Mary
By the salutation of the Saint Angel Gabriel, oh my Lady Mary I salute you, thou art virgin in thought, And Virgin in body, the mother of God Tsabaot (The Lord of Host) salutation to you. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Rejoice thou who is hailed, O graceful God is with you. Beseech and pray for our mercy to your beloved Son Jesus Christ that He may forgive us our sins. Amen
We believe in one God, God the Father, the Almighty, who created heaven and earth, and all things seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only-Begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages; Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten not created, of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made; Who for us men and our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary, and became Man. And He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered, died, and was buried. And on the third day He rose from the dead, according to the scriptures, ascended into the heavens; He sits at the right hand of His Father, and He is coming again in His glory to judge the living and the dead, whose kingdom shall have no end. Yes, we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Life-Giver, who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And in one holy, catholic and apostolic church. We confess one baptism for the remission of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the coming age. Amen.
Thanksgiving Prayer (Saint Basil)
Let us give thanks to the beneficent and merciful God, the Father of our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ, for He has covered us, helped us, guarded us, accepted us unto Him, spared us, supported us, and brought us to this hour. Let us also ask Him, the Lord our God, the Almighty, to guard us in all peace this holy day and all the days of our life.
O Master, Lord, God the Almighty, the Father of our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ, we thank You for every condition, concerning every condition, and in every condition, for You have covered us, helped us, guarded us, accepted us unto You, spared us, supported us, and brought us to this hour.
Therefore, we ask and entreat Your goodness, O Lover of mankind, to grant us to complete this holy day, and all the days of our life, in all peace with Your fear. All envy, all temptation, all the work of Satan, the counsel of wicked men, and the rising up of enemies, hidden and manifest, take them away from us, and from all Your people, and from this holy place that is Yours.
But those things which are good and profitable do provide for us; for it is You Who have given us the authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and upon all the power of the enemy.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, by the grace, compassion and love of mankind, of Your Only-Begotten Son, our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ, through Whom the glory, the honor, the dominion, and the adoration are due unto You, with Him, and the Holy Spirit, the Life-Giver, Who is of one essence with You, now and at all times, and unto the ages of all ages. Amen.
The Exultation of Virgin Mary
My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior, For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. For He who is mighty have done great things for me, And holy is His name. And His mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation. He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the
Imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted the lowly, He has filled the hungry with good things, And the rich He has sent away empty. He has helped His servant Israel, In remembrance of His mercy, as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed forever.”
Holy God, holy Mighty, holy Living Immortal, who was born from the holy Virgin Mary have mercy upon us all.
Holy God, holy Mighty, holy Living Immortal, who was baptized in Jordan and crucified on the tree of the Cross; have mercy upon us all.
Holy God, holy Mighty, holy Living Immortal, who rose from the dead on the third day, who ascended to heaven in glory, sat at the right hand of the Father and will come in glory to judge the living and the dead; have mercy upon us all.
Glory be to the Father, Glory be to the Son, Glory be to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever; and unto the ages of all ages. Amen
