In the course of the year we read many beautiful prayers and blessings, a selection of which is set out here for the instruction and edification of our parishioners and friends.  The selection will be added to from time to time.

O Lord Jesus Christ, our God, do Thou accept our fervent supplication and bless the good intent and work of Thy servants, that they may begin favourably, and may complete it unto Thy glory without any obstacle.  Do Thou assist the workers and direct the work of their hands, and cause it to be brought speedily to completion by the power of Thy Most-holy Spirit,  For Thine it is to be merciful and to save us, O our God, and unto Thee do we send up glory, together with Thy Father Who is without beginning, and Thy Most-holy, Good and Lifegiving Spirit, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages.  Amen.

O Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour, who art hymned by the Cherubim and glorified by the Seraphim: Do Thou look down with merciful eyes upon these books of the Psalms and Divine Service, which are offered by Thy servants to the glorification of Thy Holy Name in Thy Holy Church.  Bless them with Thy heavenly blessing, and sanctify them by the sprinkling of this Holy Water, and make them profitable for singing and reading unto Thy praise, and for our supplication.  Do Thou Thyself, O All-good Lord, through the holy words of the hymns and reading speak unto the hearts of them that are honouring them and listening to them in these books, that, with compunction, they bring their prayers unto Thee and always glorify Thy most-holy and splendid Name, together with the Father and the Most-holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages.  Amen.
