Ukrainians use the same phrase:  Дай Боже (все добре буде) - God grant/will (all will be well).   In other words, even though a date is set in stone, we still cannot be certain something will not happen either to us, the venue, etc.  Car accident, electric storm, zombie apocalypse, etc.

Therefore, we also add, that we will see you then, "God willing".

The entire saying in Ukrainian goes like:

Дай Боже все гоже,
що негоже поправ Боже.

Grant God, all that is good,
God, amend/fix what is not good (unseemly).

Shortened to Дай Боже (Grant it God).

Rusyns as well...and at toasts we offer them, "Дай Боже  "  not "nas davrovje"' .

Not a good conversation for the unfamiliar to overhear though.

"I'm sorry, last time I called you Father, I didn't know you're actually Master. Please forgive me? May I have your blessing? Oh thank you, let me just reverently kiss your hand now."

*HUABAND'S HEAD EXPLODES*
Oh, excuse me as I go prostrate in front of some icons, and sing a hymn to the Virgin Mary.

More #things2avoiddoing when my husband came to church with me. Thankfully it was the Agape Vespers so nothing I had to explain the reason for in the liturgy, but I also kind of wish he could have experienced the Divine Liturgy.

Christ is in our midst!

My replies should not be taken as representing Orthodox teaching - I am only just learning myself.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Make sure you cross yourself extra slow.  And light a lot of candles.  Then go drink some holy water.
