Prayers for Ukraine
« on: January 17, 2010, 08:51:13 AM »

My dear brothers and sisters, in Christ.

Today Ukraine is holding a Presidential election. 

I know that some of you don't much care about or for Ukraine, however, I do.  It is the land of my forefathers, and has given birth to many Orthodox faithful and Saints. 

Therefore, I humbly ask for your prayers that this election go smoothly and the individual who will do the most "good" for the country, the one who will do the most to help advance Ukraine, to strengthen her, to support her Church, and to help her people, be the one to gain the office of President.

Lord, have mercy on Ukraine and her people!

Господи помилуй!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord, have mercy.
I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

Hospodi pomiluj!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth,
Present everywhere and filling all things,
Treasury of Good and Giver of Life,
Come dwell with us,
Cleanse us from all stain,
And save our souls O Good One.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, have mercy.
"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"
