I always use a prayer book printed by the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA (headquarters in South Bound Brook, NJ). It has all prayers in my native Ukrainian on the left hand side of the page and in English on the right. I got it directly from Fr. Hieromonk Daniel Zelinsky, by mail. The jurisdiction's contact e-mail address is consistory@verizon.net; it is on their Web site (http://www.uocofusa.org/).

I also highly recommend this prayerbook,

Yes, this prayerbook is excellent. The favorite one for me as well.

I must vote for the Ukrainian Orthodox USA prayer book as well.

I currently use the Jordanville Prayerbook and the Old Orthodox Prayerbook. As for a Bible I use the King James and Douay-Rheims.

I used to use the Jordanville Prayer Book, which is good, but now I use mainly the Old Rite Orthodox Prayer book (except for a few prayers that it doesn't have), as it is a much more fluent translation than the Jordanville.  I also like all the litanies to saints in the daily prayers, which the Jordanville book lacks.

Well, I just ordered the Old Orthodox Prayer Book based off of the recommendations in this thread.  Hopefully the translation will be a bit better than in my Jordanville book.  I figure that there isn't any harm in getting several different prayer books for a bit of variety in my non-spontaneous prayer life.  I'll probably eventually check out the Ukrainian prayer book as well.  Thanks for the suggestions.

Anyone seen An Orthodox Prayer Book by Archimandrite Ephrem?

I'm particularly interested in this one because I like the way he translated the other Liturgical texts on his website. And while I prefer modern English, I prefer British English over American English.
