Prayer to Jesus Christ

Thou who at every season
and every hour,
in Heaven and on Earth,
art worshipped and glorified;

O Christ our God,
who art long-suffering,
merciful and compassionate;
who lovest the just
and showest mercy upon the sinner;
who callest all to salvation
through the promise of blessings to come:

O Lord,
in this hour receive our supplications,
and direct our lives
according to Thy commandments.
Sanctify our souls, hallow our bodies,
correct our thoughts, cleanse our minds;
deliver us from all tribulations, evil and distress.

Compass us about with Thy holy Angels,
that guided and guarded by them,
we may attain to the unity of the faith
and to the knowledge of Thine unapproachable glory,
for Thou art blessed unto ages of ages.
