Rising from sleep I worship You, O Good One, singing You the hymn the angels chant, O Mighty One: Holy, Holy, Holy are You, O God! Through the prayers of Your angels, have mercy on us.

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

You have raised me from my bed and sleep. Lord, fill my mind and heart with Your light, and open my lips to sing to You, Most Holy Trinity: Holy, Holy, Holy, are You, O God! Through the prayers of Your Saints, have mercy on us.

Now and ever and forever. Amen.

Without a warning the Judge will come, and what everyone has done will be revealed. In awe then, I sing my morning hymn to You: Holy, holy, holy are You, O God! Through the prayers of the Birth-giver of God, have mercy on us.

Psalm 51

Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your steadfast love; according to Your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done that which is evil in Your sight, so that You are justified in Your sentence and blameless in Your judgment. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Behold, You desire truth in the inward being; therefore, teach me wisdom in my secret heart. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Fill me with joy and gladness; let the bones which You have broken rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.

Create a clean heart in me, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me. Cast me not away from Your presence, and take not Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners will return to You. Deliver me from death, O God, You, the God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of our deliverance.

O Lord, You will open my lips, and my mouth will show forth Your praise. For You have no delight in sacrifice; were I to give a burnt offering, You would not be pleased. The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.

Do good to Zion in Your good pleasure; rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, then will You delight in right sacrifices, in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings; then bulls will be offered on Your altar.

Prayers to the Birth-giver of God

O Birth-giver of God, my most holy Lady! Unworthy as I am, I beg you: by your holy and powerful prayers, cleanse my clouded mind and bruised heart. Free me from the memories of sins long gone by. Rescue me from every inclination to do wrong. In your goodness help me, for I am poor and lost. For you are praised by all generations, and your glorious name is honored forever.

Hail Mary, full of grace, O Virgin Birth-giver of God, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, for you have given birth to Christ, the Saviour and deliverer of our souls.

Under your protection, we hasten, O Virgin Birth-giver of God. Do not turn away from us in our time of need, but pure and blessed Lady, save us!

Pray to God for me, O Saint (The Name of Your Patron Saint), well pleasing to God. I place myself in your care as my intercessor with the Lord.

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.

A Prayer at the Beginning of the Day

O Lord, allow me to greet the coming day in peace. Help me in all things to rely upon Your holy will. In every hour of the day, reveal Your will to me. Bless my dealings with all who surround me. Teach me to treat all that comes to me throughout the day with peace of soul, and with the firm conviction that Your will governs all. In what I do and say guide my thoughts and feelings. In unexpected events, do not let me forget that all things are sent by You. Teach me to act firmly and wisely, without making others bitter or embarrassing them. Give me the strength to bear the fatigue of the coming day and everything that it will bring. Direct my will, teach me to pray, pray Yourself in me. Amen
