In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Glory to You, our God, Glory to You!

O Heavenly King, the Comforter; the Spirit of Truth, Who are in all places and fill all things; Treasurer of blessings and Giver of life, come and dwell within us and cleanse us from every blemish and save our souls, O blessed One.

(If it is during the Paschal Season  O Heavenly King is replaced by: Christ is Risen from the dead, trampling down death by death and to those in the tombs, bestowing life (3))

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us. (Three Times)

Lord, have mercy. (Three Times)

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever. Amen.

Our Father Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine 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 forever. Amen.

Lord Have Mercy. (Twelve Times)

The day is now over, Lord: I thank You. Let this evening and this night pass without sin, O Saviour, and save me.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit:

Now that the day is over, Master: I glorify You and ask that this evening and night be without sin.

Now and ever and forever. Amen.

Now that the day has run its course, Holy One: I praise You and ask that this evening and night may be without sin; grant this, O Saviour and save me!

Psalm 4

Answer me when I call, O God Who pleads my cause. You have given me room when I was in distress. Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer!

O men, how long shall my honor suffer shame? How long will you love vain words and seek after lies? But know that the Lord has set apart the godly for Himself; the Lord hears when I call to Him.

Be angry, but sin not; commune with your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the Lord.

There are many who say, "O that we might see some good! Lift up the light of your countenance upon us, O Lord!"

You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound. In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

A Prayer to God The Father

O Eternal God, King of all creation, Who has allowed me to reach this hour, forgive me the sins which I have committed this day in thought, word and deed, and cleanse me, Lord, from every stain of flesh and spirit. Let me sleep through this night in peace, to rise from my bed and to please Your Holy Name the rest of my life, and to conquer the dark spiritual forces that fight against me. Deliver me from all false pride and 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 forever. Amen.

A Prayer to God the Son

O Almighty Lord, Word of the Father, Jesus Christ, Who Yourself are perfect, for the sake of Your great mercy, never depart from me, but dwell in me forever. O Jesus, Good Shepherd of your sheep, deliver me from the attacks of the evil one. Lord Jesus Christ, Holy King, keep me while I sleep in the unchanging light of Your Holy Spirit, the Spirit with which You sanctified Your disciples. Enlighten my mind with the light of understanding Your holy Gospel, my soul with the love of Your Cross, my heart with the purity of Your Word, my body with Your sacred Passion, my senses with Your humility, and awaken me at the proper time to glorify You. For You, above all, are adorable, together with Your eternal Father and Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever. Amen.

A Prayer to God the Holy Spirit

O Holy Spirit, most merciful Comforter: You proceed from the Father in a way we cannot understand. Come, I ask You, and dwell in my heart. Purify and cleanse me from all sin, and sanctify my soul. Cleanse it from every impurity, water its dryness, melt its coldness, save it from the paths of sin. Teach me humility that I may be pleasing to You, that You will dwell in me forever. Most blessed Light, comforting Light, enlighten me. Joy of paradise, fountain of delight, my God, give Yourself to me; kindle within me the fire of Your love. My Lord, instruct, direct and defend me in all things.. Give me strength against all my fears and keep me from despair. Give me a faith that is real, a firm hope, and a sincere and perfect love. Let me always do Your most holy will. Amen.

A Prayer to the Mother of God

O loving Mother of our Good King, pure and blessed Virgin Mary: pour the grace of your Son and our God into my restless soul. Lead me by your prayers to always do the right thing, so that I may spend my whole life without blame and reach paradise through your prayers, Mother of God, for you are pure and blessed forever.

A Prayer to the Holy Trinity

The Father is my hope; the Son is my refuge; the Holy Spirit is my protection. O Holy Trinity, glory be to You!

You are truly deserving of glory, O Birth-giver of God, the ever-blessed and most pure Mother of our God. More honorable than the Cherubim and beyond compare more glorious than the Seraphim, who as a Virgin gave birth to the Word of God, true Birth-giver of God, we magnify you.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever. Amen.

Lord, have mercy. (Three Times)

Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, for the sake of Your most pure Mother, our venerable and God-bearing fathers, and all the saints, save me, a sinner. Amen.
