Orthodox Morning Prayer

Thou hast raised me from bed and sleep, O Lord; enlighten my mind and heart, and open my lips, that I may praise Thee, O Holy Trinity: Holy, Holy, Holy art Thou, O God. For the sake of the Mother of God, have mercy upon us.

 

O Christ, the True Light, Who illuminest and sanctifiest every human being coming into the world: let the light of Thy countenance be turned upon us, that in it we may behold the unapproachable Light. guide our footsteps toward working according to Thy commandments, through the intercessions of Thy most pure Mother, and of all the saints. Amen.

 

To Thee, O Master Who lovest mankind, I hasten on rising from sleep; by Thy mercy I go forth to do Thy works, and I pray unto Thee: help me at all times, and in all things; deliver me from every evil thing of this world and from the pursuit of the devil; save me and lead me into Thine eternal Kingdom. For Thou art my Creator, Provider and Bestower of every good; wherefore all my hope is in Thee, and to Thee I ascribe glory, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

 

We bless Thee, O God in the highest and Lord of mercies, Who ever workest great and mysterious deeds for us, glorious, wonderful and countless, Who providest us with sleep as a rest from our infirmities, and as a repose for our bodies tired by labor. We thank Thee that Thou hast not destroyed us in our transgressions, but in Thy love toward mankind, Thou hast raised us up that we might glorigy Thy Majesty. We entreat Thine infinite goodness, enlighten the eyes of our understanding and raise up our minds from the heavy sleep of indolence; open our mouths and fill them with Thy praise, that we may unceasingly sing and confess Thee, Who art God glorified in all and by all, the eternal Father, the Only- Begotten Son, and the All-Holy and Good and Life-Giving Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Προσευχή για την Ελλάδα

Δέσποτα Κύριε ο Θεός ημών, Εσύ είσαι ο πλούσιος σε έλεος και ευσπλαχνία και συγκαταβαίνεις να εισακούεις τις προσευχές μας, προσευχές και κραυγές ικεσίας αμαρτωλών δούλων σου. Συ με τη σοφή φιλάνθρωπη πρόνοιά σου διευθύνεις και κυβερνάς τη ζωή όλων μας, τη ζωή όλων των ανθρώπων. Και όταν μας παιδαγωγείς με τα διάφορα δυσάρεστα για μας γεγονότα και θλίψεις, επιδιώκεις να μας επαναφέρεις στο αρχαίο κάλλος και την πρώτη ευγένεια που χάσαμε με τη συμβουλή του εχθρού της σωτηρίας μας διαβόλου. «Θέλεις πάντας ανθρώπους σωθήναι και εις επίγνωσιν αληθείας ελθείν» (Α´ Τιμ. β´ 4).

Elder Arsenios Spileotis

Elder Arsenios Spileotis

It is not easy to describe in a few words the life and works of a great ascetic Elder Arsenios. He was born in Pontos in 1886. While still young, he was burning with Holy zeal. He decided to leave his country and walk from Russia to Constantinople and from there to the Holy Land, where he served at the Holy Sepulcher and at other Holy places for almost ten years.

In the Church of the Holy Resurrection in Jerusalem, blessed Elder Arsenios served for more than ten years. There, it was God’s will to meet with the well-known great ascetic of Egina, Ieronymos, from whom he received the higher teachings of monastic life. His soul, thirsty and burning with Holy adoration, was calling together with David: “Truly my soul waits upon God, from Him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, He is my fortress, I shall never be shaken”. He then left the wiles of the world and ascended to Mount Athos, the Holy garden of our Lady.
