Prayer of Metropolitan Philaret

Home/Prayer of Metropolitan Philaret

Lord, give me the strength to greet the coming day in peace. Help me in all things to rely on Your holy will. Reveal Your will to me every hour of the day. Bless my dealings with all people. Teach me to treat all people who come to me throughout the day with peace of soul and with firm conviction that Your will governs all. In all my deeds and words guide my thoughts and feelings. In unexpected events, let me not forget that all are sent by you. Teach me to act firmly and wisely, without embittering and embarrassing others. Give me the physical strength to bear the labors of this day. Direct my will, teach me to pray, pray in me. Amen.

(Here you may add your own private prayers and intercessions, using your own words or some of the Prayers found on the Web Page. When you have finished, conclude with this prayer.)

Through the prayers of our holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
