By the prayers of the Theotokos and all your saints, Lord, let us pass this night, and indeed the rest of our life, in peace and without sin, to the glory of your name.
Lord, give rest to the souls of your departed servants, in a place of brightness, refreshment, and repose; where all suffering, sorrow, and sighing have fled away.
Tomorrow is the feast of the Dormition (“Falling Asleep”) of the Mother of God. Our parish celebration will be tomorrow evening and Sunday morning. But in the morning tomorrow, we’re streaming the Service of Supplication to the Mother of God on the parish Facebook page and YouTube channel.
By the prayers of the Theotokos, Savior, save us.
“Remember, Lord, the rains and all waters and bless them.
Remember plants, seeds and fruits of the field and make them abundant.
Remember the safety of your holy church and all cities and countries.
Remember the safety of all people and of beasts and of me, your sinful servant.”
