Prayer at the Icon of Christ

We reverence Your spotless icon, O gracious Lord, and ask forgiveness of our transgressions, O Christ our God. Because of Your own good will You ascended the cross in the flesh, that You might deliver those who You had created from the bondage of the enemy. We cry aloud unto You; You have filled all things with joy, O our Saviour, for You came to save the world.  Amen.




Prayer at the Icon of the Theotokos

Tenderness springs forth from You, O Theotokos, make us worthy of compassion. Look upon sinful people, reveal your power forever as we hope in you and cry aloud: Hail! As did the Archangel Gabriel, Chief Captain of the Bodiless Powers.  Amen.
