Prayer for the evening

O eternal God, King of all creation, who have kept me safe to attain to this hour, forgive me the sins which I have committed this day in thought, word, and deed. And cleanse, O Lord, my humble soul from every stain of flesh and spirit. Grant me, O Lord, to pass this night in peace, to rise from my bed, and to please Your Holy Name all the days of my life, and to vanquish the enemies, both corporeal and incorporeal, that contend against me. Deliver me, O Lord, from the vain thoughts that stain me, and from evil desires. For Yours is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.


The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible; and in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-Begotten, begotten of the Father before all worlds, Light of Light, Very God of Very God, begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father; by whom all things were made: who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried. The third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; whose Kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And I believe in One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Psalm 51

Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your loving kindness; 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 acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight- That You may be found just when You speak, And blameless when You judge. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me hear joy and gladness, That the bones You have broken may rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins, And blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners shall be converted to You.
Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, The God of my salvation, And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, And my mouth shall show forth Your praise. For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart- These, O God, You will not despise.
Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; Build the walls of Jerusalem. Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, With burnt offering and whole burnt offering; Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.


Psalm 134

Behold, bless the Lord, All you servants of the Lord, Who by night stand in the house of the Lord! Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, And bless the Lord.
The Lord who made heaven and earth bless you from Zion!


Psalm 143

Hear my prayer, O Lord, Give ear to my supplications! In Your faithfulness answer me, And in Your righteousness. Do not enter into judgment with Your servant, For in Your sight no one living is righteous.
For the enemy has persecuted my soul; He has crushed my life to the ground; He has made me dwell in darkness, Like those who have long been dead. Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me; My heart within me is distressed.
I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I muse on the work of Your hands. I spread out my hands to You; My soul longs for You like a thirsty land.
Answer me speedily, O Lord; My spirit fails! Do not hide Your face from me, Lest I be like those who go down into the pit. Cause me to hear Your loving kindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You.
Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies; In you I take shelter. Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.
Revive me, O Lord, for Your name's sake! For Your righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble. In Your mercy cut off my enemies, And destroy all those who afflict my soul; For I am Your servant.


Intercessory prayers

Remember, O Lord Jesus Christ, our God, Your mercies and loving kindnesses, which have been from everlasting, and for the sake of which You did become man and deign to endure crucifixion and death for the salvation of all who rightly believe in You. You rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, and sit at the right hand of God the Father, and regard the humble prayers of all who call upon You with their whole heart. Incline Your ear and hear the humble entreaty of me, Your unprofitable servant, who offers it for an odor of spiritual fragrance for all Your people.

And first of all remember Your Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, which You have purchased with Your precious blood. Confirm and strengthen it, enlarge and multiply it, keep it in peace, and preserve it unconquerable by the gates of hell forever. Heal the schisms of the churches, quench the ragings of the heathen, speedily undo and root out the growths of heresies, and bring them to naught by the power of Your Holy Spirit.

Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon all world rulers, on our King (Queen), on our President (Prime Minister) and on all our civil authorities. Speak peace and blessing in their hearts for Your Holy Church and for all Your people, in order that we may live a calm and peaceful life, in all godliness and dignity.

Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon patriarchs, metropolitans, archbishops, priests, ministers, and deacons, and the whole clergy of Your Church, which You have established to feed the flock of Your word, and by their prayers have mercy upon me, and save me, a sinner.

Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon my spiritual father and by his holy prayers forgive me my transgressions.

Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon my wife (husband), my parents, my spouse, my brothers and sisters, my children, my kinsmen after the flesh, and my friends, and grant them Your blessings both here and hereafter.

Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon the old, the young, the needy, the orphans and the widows, and on all that are in sickness and sorrow, in distress and affliction, in oppression and captivity, in prison and confinement. More especially have mercy upon Your servants who are under persecution for Your sake and for the sake of the Right Faith at the hands of heathen nations, of apostates, and of heretics: remember them, visit, strengthen, keep, and comfort them, and make haste to grand them, by Your power relief, freedom, and deliverance.

Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon all who are sent on duty, all who travel, our fathers, brothers , and sisters, and upon all true Christians.

Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon those who envy and affront me, and do me harm, and do not let them perish through me, a sinner.

Those who depart from the Right Faith, dazzled by destroying heresies, enlighten by the light of Your holy wisdom, and unite them to Your Holy, Apostolic, Catholic Church.


Lord Jesus Christ bless me (forty times).

A prayer to Christ

O Christ our God, who at all times and in every hour in heaven and on earth are worshiped and glorified; who are long suffering , merciful, and compassionate; who love the just and show mercy upon sinners; who call all to salvation through the promise of the good things to come; O Lord, in this hour receive our supplications and direct our lives according to Your commandments.

Exorcism, prayer for envy, evil eye

We pray to the Lord.

Lord our God, the King of centuries, the all-ruler and almighty, who create and alter all things by your will alone; You turned the seven times furnace and the flame in Babylon to a dew and you preserved safe the three holy youths; the doctor and healer of our souls; the security of those who hope in You; we pray and beg You to take out, send away, release every evil energy, every satanic attack and every spell, hostility, plot, sly curiosity, curse, damage and eye envy of the bad and cunning people from ...me your servant; and either from beauty or boldness or happiness or jealousy or envy that took place.

Yes my Lord our God have mercy on ...me your creature and save your servant from every damage and influence caused by envy and protect ...me from every evil that is greater than ...me; break ...me free from every sin and any bondage; intercessions of the ever blessed, glorious lady, mother of God for ever virgin Mary, of the lighting Archangels and of all the Saints. Amen.


Prayer to God our Father

God, our all-powerful Father,
praise be to you, who created everything both visible and invisible. Scientists say that the stars in the universe are more than the grains of sand on earth. Us compared to this enormous universe you created without sweating, we are so small, we are nothing.
Praise be to you, our all-powerful Father, who are infinite. To compare two values you divide one by the other, any number you divide by infinity is zero. If you divide us by you the result is zero. Compared to you we are zero, we are nothing.
Praise be to you, who are all-powerful, you turn the strongest man into ashes in milliseconds. Your acts of power are great (Psalm 150). Your surpassing glory is indisputable.
Thank you for keeping us alive, for providing us with food, clothes, and shelter, so we may live and glorify you.
We love you, our all-powerful Father, so much that we try to keep your commands. By keeping your commands, we prove our love to you (John 14:21).
God, our almighty Father, your son Jesus Christ told us: "Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name." (John 16:23) We ask the following in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, your son, whom we worship.
God merciful, your son Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, cleanse us, forgive us from all our sins and iniquities. Cleanse, wash thoroughly our whole bodies and souls from all our trespasses.
God, heavenly Father, let your kingdom come on earth now, and Jesus Christ, your son, reign now, and for ever (Matthew 6:10).
God, Lord of justice, direct us to keep your commands, guide us to be always in repentance, and to partake worthily the body and blood of your beloved son, Jesus Christ (Matthew 6:11), (John 6:48-51).
Father of lights, like you filled the apostles, in Jerusalem, with your Holy Spirit, fill us with your Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4). Send and abide in us your Holy Spirit. Make us temples of the Holy Spirit.
God, our all-powerful Father, hear our cry like you heard the cry of Israelites, and you divided the sea and your people went through the sea on dry ground (Exodus 14:15-16), please, fulfill our requests, for You to be glorified (John 15:7-8).
God, thank you again, for listening to us, and for fulfilling our petitions (John 11:41-44).


A prayer to Christ for the night

And grant rest, O 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 precepts and 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.


Hymn to the Mother of God

It is truly right to bless you, O God deliverer, ever blessed and most pure, and the Mother of our God. More honorable than the cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the seraphim, without defilement you gave birth to God the Word: true God deliverer, we magnify you.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Lord, have mercy (three times).

Just before going to sleep

Into Your hands, O Lord Jesus Christ, I commend my spirit and body; bless me, save me, and grant me eternal life. Amen.
