Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.  Amen.

A PRAYER TO THE THEOTOKOS

Make us worthy of compassion, O Theotokos, Who are a source of tenderness.  Look upo a sinful people and manifest Your power as ever.   For, hoping on You, we ry out aloud to You as Gabriel once did:  Hail, chief among the bodiless powers; hail You Who are full of Grace; hail unwedded bride.  Amen.

A PRAYER TO YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL

O Angel of Christ, holy guardian and protector of my soul and body, forgive me every transgression which I have committed this day and deliver me from every craft of my enemy and adversary.  May I not anger my God by any sin.  Prayer for me to the Lord, His sinful and unworthy servant that He may make me worthy of the grace of the All-Holy Triity, nd of the Most Blessed Theotokos and of all the Saints.  Amen.

A PRAYER TO YOUR PATRON SAINT

Pray unto God for me, O Holy Saint (Name), well-pleasing to God, for I turn unto You who are the speedy helper and intercessor for my soul.  Amen.

PRAYERS FOR THE DEPARTED

Remember, O Lord, all who have fallen asleep in the hope of the resurrection and of eternal life, our fathers, mothers, brothers, and sister, Orthodox Christians who rest both here and in all other parts of the earth.  Place them with Your saints, where the light of Your countenance shines, and have mercy upon us, for You are gracious and love all mankind.

Grant, O Lord, to all that have gone before us in faith and hope of the resurrection, remission of sins and keep them in everlasting memory.  Amen.

In the place of Your rest, O Lord, where all Your saints repose, give to the souls of Your servants, for You alone are immortal.

O Virgin alone pure and immaculate that in maiden-motherhood brought forth God, intercede for the salvation of the souls of your servants.

With the saints give rest, O Christ to the souls of Your servants (names), where there is not pain sorrow or sighing, but Life everlasting.  Amen.
