Guide us to do those things that are pleasing and dear to you, that through us, unworthy though we are, your all-holy name may be glorified, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one Godhead and one Kingdom.
Eternal God, O Light without beginning and everlasting, Fountain of mercy, Abyss of goodness! Cause the light of your face to shine upon us, and direct the works of our hands to do your will.
Christ, the true Light! You enlighten and sanctify all people. May your light so shine in us that we may see your brilliance, through the prayers of your all-pure Mother and all your saints.
We entreat you, Lord, give us grace and strength to sing your praises with understanding, and to pray to you unceasingly, working out our salvation in fear and trembling with the help of your Christ.
Fill our mouths with your praise, O Lord, that we may ever extol your holy name, and share the inheritance of all who truly hold you in awe and keep your commandments.
Deal tenderly with us, O Healer and Physician of our souls. Lead us to that haven of safety that is the performance of your will. Enlighten the eyes of our hearts that we may recognize your truth.
O God and Master! Accept us and the praise we bring you this day together with our humble thanks, and grant us everything we need for our salvation.
With your Sovereign Spirit steady my mind, that, guided and guarded each day, I may be able to practice your commandments, always remembering your glorious presence that looks upon the deeds of all people.
We beseech your goodness: In your great tenderness, wash away our faults and receive our prayer, for we seek refuge in you, our mighty and merciful God.
O Lord, listen to our supplications with mercy and answer them with compassion. In your good pleasure, O God accept, our adoration and prayer and be gracious to us.
