Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Heavenly King, Advocate, Spirit of Truth, who are everywhere present and fill all things, Treasury of Blessings, Bestower of Life, come, and dwell within us; cleanse us of all that defiles us, and O Good One, save our souls.

We have seen the true light; we have received the heavenly Spirit; we have found the true faith! We worship the undivided Trinity for having saved us.

O Lord, when You sent down Your Spirit, upon the assembled Apostles, the children of Israel were struck with awe as they heard them speak in many tongues, inspired by the Holy Spirit. They knew them to be illiterate and now saw them wise, speaking divine truths and bringing Gentiles to the faith. Therefore, we also cry out to You: You have appeared on earth and saved us from error; O Lord, glory to You!

Царю небесний, утішителю, Душе істини, що всюди єси і все наповняєш, скарбе дібр і життя подателю, прийди і вселися в нас, і очисти нас від усякої скверни, і спаси, Благий, душі наші.

Ми бачили світло істинне, ми прийняли Духа небесного, ми знайшли віру істинну, нероздільній Тройці поклоняємось, вона бо спасла нас.

Psalm 50
Have mercy on me, God, in Your kindness.*In Your compassion blot out my offence. O wash me more and more from my guilt* and cleanse me from my sin.
My offences truly I know them;* my sin is always before me. Against You, You alone, have I sinned;* what is evil in Your sight I have done.
That You may be justified when You give sentence*and be without reproach when You judge.
O see, in guilt, I was born,* a sinner was I conceived. Indeed, You love truth in the heart;* then in the secret of my heart teach me
wisdom.
O purify me, then I shall be clean;* O wash me, I shall be whiter than snow. Make me hear rejoicing and gladness,* that the bones You have crushed may thrill.
From my sins turn away Your face* and blot out all my guilt.
A pure heart create for me, O God,*put a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence,*nor deprive me of Your holy spirit.
Give me again the joy of Your help;* with a spirit of fervour sustain me,
That I may teach transgressors Your ways*and sinners may return to You.
O rescue me, God, my helper,*and my tongue shall ring out Your goodness.
O Lord, open my lips* and my mouth shall declare Your praise.
For in sacrifice You take no delight,* burnt offering from me You would refuse.
My sacrifice, a contrite spirit.*A humbled, contrite heart You will not spurn. In Your goodness, show favour to Zion:*rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.Then You will be pleased with lawful sacrifice, burnt offerings wholly consumed,*Then You will be off ered young bulls on Your altar.

The Nicene Constantinopolitan Creed
I believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen.
I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father. Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in being with the Father.
Through Him, all things were made. For us men and for our salvation
He came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit
He was born of the Virgin Mary and became man.
For our sake, He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; He suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day, He rose again in fulfilment of the Scriptures: He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
Who proceeds from the Father. With the Father and the Son
He is worshipped and glorified.
He has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Prayers to the Mother of God
Rejoice, Mother of God, Virgin Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb; for you have borne Christ, the Savior and Redeemer of our souls.
It is truly right to bless you, O God-bearing One, as the ever blessed and immaculate Mother of our God. More honourable than the cherubim and by far more glorious than the seraphim; ever a virgin, you gave birth
to God the Word, O true Mother of God, we magnify you.
We flee to the shelter of your mercy, O Virgin Mother of God. Do not reject our prayers of anguish, but free us from tribulations, O only pure and blessed One. Most glorious, ever-virgin Mother of God, receive our prayers and bring them to Your Son and our God, that because of You, He may save our souls.

Prayer to the Angels
All you heavenly powers, holy angels and archangels, pray to God for us sinners.

Prayer to All Saints
O glorious saints and all-praiseworthy apostles, prophets, martyrs, and all the saints,pray to God for us sinners.
