Prayer of St. John Chrysostom – According to the Hours of the Day and Night

O Lord, deprive me not of Thy heavenly blessings;

O Lord, deliver me from eternal torment;

O Lord, if I have sinned in my mind or thought, in word deed, forgive me.

O Lord, deliver me from every ignorance and heedlessness, from pettiness of the soul and stony hardness of heart;

O Lord, deliver me from every temptation;

O Lord, enlighten my heart darkened by evil desires;

O Lord, I, being a human being, have sinned; do Thou, being God, forgive me in Thy lovingkindness, for Thou knowest the weakness of my soul.

O Lord, send down Thy grace to help me, that I may glorify Thy holy Name;

O Lord Jesus Christ, inscribe me, Thy servant, in the Book of Life, and grant me a blessed end;

O Lord my God, even if I have done nothing good in Thy sight, yet grant me, according to Thy grace, that I may make a start in doing good.

O Lord, sprinkle on my heart the dew of Thy grace;

O Lord of heaven and earth, remember me, Thy sinful servant, cold of heart and impure, in Thy Kingdom.

O Lord, receive me in repentance;

O Lord, leave me not;

O Lord, save me from temptation;

O Lord, grant me pure thoughts;

O Lord, grant me tears of repentance, remembrance of death, and the sense of peace;

O Lord, grant me mindfulness to confess my sins;

O Lord, grant me humility, charity, and obedience;

O Lord, grant me tolerance, magnanimity, and gentleness;

O Lord, implant in me the root of all blessings: the fear of Thee in my heart;

O Lord, vouchsafe that I may love Thee with all my heart and soul, and that I may obey in all things Thy will;

O Lord, shield me from evil persons and devils and passions and all other lawless matters;

O Lord, Who knowest Thy creation and that which Thou hast willed for it; may Thy will also be fulfilled in me, a sinner, for Thou art blessed forevermore. Amen.
