A Morning Prayer: Syrian Clementine Liturgy:1st century
O God, Who art the unsearchable abyss of peace, the ineffable sea of love,
the fountain of blessings, and the bestower of affection,
Who sendest peace to those that receive it;
open to us this day the sea of Thy love, a
nd water us with the plenteous streams from the riches of Thy grace.
Make us children of quietness, and heirs of peace. Enkindle in us the fire of Thy love;
sow in us Thy fear; strengthen our weakness by Thy power;
bind us closely to Thee and to each other in one firm bond of unity;
for the sake of Jesus Christ.
Prayer For Charity Coptic Liturgy of St. Cyril link
O God of love,
Who hast given a new commandment through Thine only begotten Son,
that we should love one another, even as Thou didst love us,the unworthy
and the wandering, and gavest Thy beloved Son for our life and salvation;
we pray Thee, Lord, give to us, Thy servants, in all time of our life on the earth,
a mind forgetful of past ill-will, a pure conscience and sincere thoughts,
and a heart to love our brethren;
for the sake of Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord and only Saviour.
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth,
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell;
The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; F
rom thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; The Holy catholic Church,
the Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body, And the Life everlasting.
Harnish: A Scottish Benediction link
Give us, O Lord, grace and strength to forebear and to persevere.
Give us courage, gaiety, and the quiet mind.
Spare to us our friends, soften to us our enemies.
Bless us, if it may be, in all our innocent endeavors,
And if it may not be, give us the strength to encounter that which is to come so that we may be,
Brave in peril,
Constant in tribulation,
Temperate in wrath,And in all changes in fortune, down to the gates of death,
may we be loyal and loving to one another.
