O Lord our God.Who has given Your peace unto mankind,and Who did send down the gift of the Holy Spirit upon Your disciples and apostles,and in your might did open their lips with the tongues of fire.Open also the lips of us sinners and teach us how and for what we must pray.Be the Helmsman of our life,O calm haven of tempest-tossed.Make known to us the way in which we should walk.Renew a right spirit within us,and with Your governing Spirit establish our unstable mind,that, being guided daily by Your good Spirit unto that which is for our benefit, we may be counted worthy to do Your commandments and always to keep in remembrance Your glorious coming which shall search out the deeds done by man.Strengthen us that we might not be deceived by the corruptible delights of this world,but that we might desire the enjoyment of the treasures to come.For You are blessed and praised in all Your Saints unto the ages of ages.Amen.Through the prayers of our holy Fathers,Lord Jesus Christ our God,have mercy on us. Amen.
