Divine Father, you who built the Church on the solid and immovable rock of your Son, that we might have a perpetual guide for our souls in our earthly pilgrimage: please listen to the hearts of the candidates to the See of Moscow, as you did with king David, so that a devout man may become the humble Patriarch of your Church established in Moscow. Amen!
Our Lord Jesus Christ, who consecrated the Apostles to share in your bishopric ministry, not only to administer the Divine Mysteries, but also and especially to safeguard the true faith: prepare the Russian Orthodox Church to elect a valid follower of the servant of God Alexi II, who now abides in your glory. Amen!
Holy Spirit, Divine Paraclete, who breath over the church when assembled in the name of Christ, and who in thy power choose and order those who are to follow the apostles in their ministry of leadership: enlighten your servants in Moscow who are to elect their new Patriarch, so that the new-elect might become a luminous lighthouse in the darkness of this world corrupted by relativism and atheism. Amen!
