Prayer in the back of the NT Orthodox Bible
« on: August 04, 2013, 08:28:32 PM »
O Christ our God, who at all times and in every hour in heaven and on earth are worshipped and glorified; Who are longsuffering, merciful, and compassionate; Who love the just and show mercy upon sinners; Who call all to salvation through the promise of good things to come; O Lord, in this hour receive our supplications and direct our lives according to your commandments. Sanctify our souls, purify our bodies, correct our thoughts, cleanse our minds; deliver us from all tribulation, evil and distress. Surround us with your holy angels, so that guided and guarded by them, we may attain to the unity of the faith and to the full knowledge of your unapproachable glory. For you are blessed unto ages of ages. Amen.

This is not a lecture.

What about it?  it's the prayer of the hours, attributed to St. Basil the Great.
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

It is.
