Daily Meditation

(At 7:00am or upon arising from sleep, we ask God to guide us through the day with His light.)
Christ, the true Light, You enlighten and sanctify every man. May Your light shine in us that we may see Your radiance. Help us to live according to Your commandments, through the prayers of Your all-pure Mother and all Your Saints. Amen.

(At 9:00am- At this hour the disciples received the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.)
Lord God, Almighty Father, Only Son, Lord Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit, one God and one Power, have mercy on me a sinner and save me Your unworthy servant according to the ways of Your wisdom, for You are blessed forever and ever. Amen.

(At 12:00 noon- At this hour Jesus Christ was crucified.)
God, Maker of all creation, accept these prayers of appreciation and petition from us sinners, and deliver us from any fatal fall into darkness and from all enemies, visible or invisible. Lord, who loves everyone, by Your great mercy, You have sent Your only son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, for the salvation of all, and by Your Holy Cross, have canceled the debt of our sins and defeated the powers of darkness. Penetrate our bodies with Your power and wrap our hearts with love in You, that we might always gaze upon You and be guided by Your eternal light. We give unending praise and thanks to You, eternal Father, to Your only Son and to Your all-holy, good and life-giving Spirit, now and forever and ever. Amen.

(3:00pm- At this hour Jesus died on the Cross.)
Master, Lord Jesus Christ our God, who patiently endured our sins and led us to this hour, at which You were hung on the life-giving Cross, who opened the way to Paradise for the penitent thief and destroyed death by Your death, have mercy on us Your sinful and unworthy servants. We have sinned and violated Your law; we are unworthy to lift up our eyes and look into the heights of heaven, for we have forsaken the path of Your righteousness and have walked according to the desires of our hearts. But now we beg You in Your abundant goodness; spare us, Lord, in Your great mercy and save us for the glory of Your Holy Name, for our days were spent in vain. Save us from the hand of the enemy, forgive our sins and destroy the desires of our flesh, that we might live anew in You, our Master and Benefactor. Help us follow Your commandments, and attain eternal rest, where all the blessed dwell. For You are truly the joy of all those who love You, Christ our God, and we glorify Your eternal Father and Your all holy, good and life-giving Spirit, now and forever and ever. Amen.
