PRAYER: The Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom

The Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom

The Trisagion:

Holy God,
holy and strong,
holy and immortal,
have mercy on us.

The Cherubic Hymn:

We who in a mystery represent the cherubim and sing the thrice-holy hymn to the life-giving Trinity, let us now lay aside all Earthly cares, that we may receive the king of all, invisibly escorted by the hosts of angels.  Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Before Communion:

Let us pay attention: holy things for those who are holy.
Only one is holy, only one is Lord.
Jesus Christ, in the glory of God the Father.


Before Receiving Communion:

At your mystical supper, Son of God, today receive me as a partaker; I will not speak of the mystery to your enemies; I will not let my lips touch your body with a Judas-kiss; but like the thief I will acknowledge you: Remember me when you come into your kingdom.

After Communion:

We have seen the true light, we have received the Heavenly Spirit, we have found the true faith, we worship the undivided Trinity: for the Trinity has saved us.

Intercession at Great Complines:

Be mindful, O Lord, of your people here before you, and of those who are absent through age, sickness, or infirmity.  Care for the infants, guide the young, support the aged, encourage the faint-hearted, collect the scattered, and bring back the wandering to your fold.  Travel with the voyagers, defend the widows, shield the orphans, deliver the captives, heal the sick.  Succor all who are in tribulation, necessity or distress.  Remember for good all those who love us, and those who hate us, and those who have desired us, unworthy as we are, to pray for them.  And those whom we have forgotten, Lord, remember.  Grant unto each according to your merciful loving-kindness, and your eternal love; through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Troparion for Pentecost Sunday:

Blessed are you, O Christ our God; you revealed your wisdom to simple fisherfolk, sending down upon them your Holy Spirit, and through them you caught the whole world in your net.  Glory to you, Lover of humankind.


Almighty God, who hast given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplication unto thee; and hast promised that when two or three are gathered together in thy name thou will grant their requests: Fulfill now, O Lord, the desires and petitions of thy humble servants, as may be most expedient for them, granting us in this world knowledge of thy truth, and in the world to come, life everlasting.
