Prayer of St John of Chrysostom

Prayer of St John of Chrysostom

Lord, deprive me not of thy heavenly joys.
Lord, deliver me from eternal torments.
Lord, if i have sinned in mind or thought,
in word or deed, forgive me.

Lord deliver me from all ignorance,
forgetfulness, cowardice and stony insensibility.
Lord deliver me from every temptation.
Lord enlighten my heart,
which evil desires have darkened.

Lord, I being human have sinned,
but Thou being the generous God,
have mercy on me,
knowing the sickness of my soul.

Lord, send Thy grace to my help,
that I may glorify Thy holy Name!
Lord Jesus Christ, write me Thy servant
in the Book of Life and grant me a good end.

O Lord, my God, even though
I have done nothing good in Thy sight,
yet grant me by Thy grace to make a good start.
Lord, sprinkle into my heart
the dew of Thy grace.

Lord of heaven and earth remember me,
Thy sinful servant, shameful and unclean,
in Thy Kingdom! Amen.
