Morning prayer to the Holy Trinity

Arising from sleep, I thank You, O Most Holy Trinity, that, for the sake of Your great kindness and long suffering, You have not had indignation against me, for I am slothful and sinful. Neither have You destroyed me in my transgressions, but You have shown Your customary love toward mankind, and have raised me up as I lay in heedlessness, that I might sing my morning hymn and glorify Your sovereignty. Now enlighten the eyes of my understanding, open my ears to receive Your words, and teach me Your commandments. Help me to do Your will, to sing to You, to confess You from my heart, and to praise Your All-Holy Name: 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 1

Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.


Psalm 5

Give ear to my words, O Lord, Consider my meditation. Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray. My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up. For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, Nor shall evil dwell with You. The boastful shall not stand in Your sight; You hate all workers of iniquity. You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple. Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; Make Your way straight before my face.
For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; Their inward part is destruction; Their throat is an open tomb; They flatter with their tongue. Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels; Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions, For they have rebelled against You.
But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You. For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.


Psalm 121

I will lift up my eyes to the hills- From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.


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).

(Add here your requests)


Prayer for the beginning of the day

O Lord, grant me to greet the coming day in peace. Help me in all things to rely upon Your holy will. In every hour of the day reveal Your will to me. Bless my dealings with all who surround me.

In unforeseen events, let me not forget that all are sent by You. Teach me to act firmly and wisely, without embittering and embarrassing others. Give me strength to bear the fatigue of the coming day with all that it shall bring. Direct my will, teach me to pray, and You, Yourself, pray in me. Amen.


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. You charitable Lord, extend your ruling hand and your powerful and highest arm and by your search examine your human ...me and send to ...me your peaceful and ruling angels guardians of ...my soul and body, to strike and send away from ...me every cunning will, every badness, spell and envy of the fighting and jealous humans, so your beggar, guarded, chant with joy to You: "The Lord is my keeper, I am not afraid of what a human can do to me" and again: "I am not afraid of evil because You are with me; You are God my strength, powerful ruler, chief of peace, father of the future century". 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).

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.
