Ninth Hour Prayer

O Master, Lord Jesus Christ, our God, Who are long suffering toward our transgressions and have led us even to this hour, in which, You while hanging on the life-giving Tree, made the way for the entry into Paradise of the grateful thief and by death destroyed death: cleanse us, Your sinful and unworthy servants; for we have sinned and committed iniquities and are not worthy to lift up our eyes and look to the height of heaven, because we have forsaken the path of Your righteousness, and have walked dafter the desires of our hearts.  But we beseech Your boundless grace: Spare us, O Lord, according to the multitude of Your mercy, and save us for the sake of Your holy name; for our days are wastes away in vanity.  Rescue us from the hand of the adversary and forgive us our sins, and mortify the presumption of our flesh, that putting off the old man, we may put on the new one, and live for You, our Master and Benefactor; and that following in Your commandments, we may attain to eternal rest, wherein is the  dwelling place of all who are glad.  For You are indeed the true joy and gladness of those who love You, O Christ our God, and to You we send up glory, with Your Eternal Father, and Your most Holy Good and Life-creating Spirit, now and ever and forever.  Amen.

The Theophany Prayer of St. Sophronius of Jerusalem

May my prayer for the people here present be well-pleasing; Read more...

"When you pray, try to let the prayer reach your heart; in other words, it is necessary that your heart should feel what you are talking about in your prayer, that it should wish for the blessing for which you are asking.... Observe, during prayer, whether your heart is in accord with that which you are saying." - St. John of Kronstadt

Sayings From The Church Fathers

The strength of those who wish to acquire the virtues is as follows: if they fall, let them not lose their courage, but let them be sure to make a new beginning at their endeavor. Insofar, then, as we put all our energy into practicing the virtues, let us await the Lord, showing Him a generous resolve and calling on His aid, and without fail He will strengthen us with His mercy and bestow His Grace on us in abundance, in which case we will accomplish every good easily and without exertion. Abba Moses in The Evergetinos, Book I, Vol. III
