PRAYER ON ENTERING A CHURCH
I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear I will worship toward thy holy temple. Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make my way straight before me, that with a clear mind I may glorify thee forever, One Divine Power worshipped in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
PRAYER BEFORE THE ICON OF CHRIST
We reverence thy spotless Icon, O gracious Lord, and ask forgiveness of our transgressions, O Christ our God: for of thine own good will thou wast pleased to ascend the Cross in the flesh, that thou mightest deliver from bondage to the enemy those whom thou hadst fashioned. Wherefore, we cry aloud unto thee: thou hast filled all things with joy, O our Saviour, for thou didst come to save the world.
THE "JESUS" PRAYER
O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy upon me, a sinner.
PRAYER BEFORE THE ICON OF THE THEOTOKOS
Forasmuch as thou art a well-spring of tenderness, O Theotokos, make us worthy of compassion; Look upon a sinful people; Manifest thy power as ever, for hoping on thee we cry aloud unto thee: Hail! as once did Gabriel, Chief Captain of the Bodiless Powers.
A PRAYER TO YOUR PATRON SAINT
Pray unto God for me, O Holy Saint (Name), well-pleasing to God: for I turn unto thee, who art the speedy helper and intercessor for my soul.
A PRAYER FOR THE SICK
O holy Father, heavenly Physian of our souls and bodies, who hast sent thine Only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to heal all our ailments and deliver us from death: do thou visit and heal thy Servant (Name), granting him release from pain and restoration to health and vigor, that he may give thanks to unto thee and bless thy holy Name, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
