Theotokos with childLord, Almighty Power, strengthen my infirmed soul in every virtue! Strengthen my heart, weak for everything good, upon the immovable rock of Your commandments! Lord, daily I recognize, through experience, that without You I am nothing; that without You I can do no good; without You evil in its various forms is alone within me; without You I am the son of perdition. O unspeakably Good One, fill my heart with Your goodness! But above all, I pray to You, grant that I may love You with all my heart and my neighbor as myself. Grant that I may be neither malicious, proud, presumptuous, nor disobedient, but grant that I may be gentle, humble, tenderly res­pectful, and obedient. Amen.
