For the Peace of the Forum.
« on: August 14, 2008, 12:56:01 PM »
We thank You, Master and Lover of mankind, King of the Ages and Giver of all good things, for destroying the dividing wall of enmity and granting peace to those who seek your mercy. We appeal to You to awaken the longing for a peaceful life in all those who are filled with hatred for their neighbors, thinking especially of those at war or preparing for war. Grant peace to your servants. Implant in them the fear of You and confirm in them love one for another. Extinguish every dispute and banish all temptations to disagreement. For You are our peace and to You we ascribe glory: to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and forever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, have mercy.
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Please, the Prayer Forum is for prayer, not for discussions of politics or linguistics.  In keeping with this rule, the political tangent and the side discussion on variations in the Slavic languages have been split off this thread for removal to another location to be determined.
