Please join us tomorrow morning at 10am for the celebration of the Liturgy of St. James (Iakovos) - the ancient Liturgy of the Church in Jerusalem during the first thousand years of Christian history.
Here is the prayer just before the singing of the Thrice Holy Hymn - Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us:
Priest: O compassionate and merciful Lord, patient, loving and true, look down upon us from Your holy dwelling place and hear us, Your servants. Deliver us from every temptation and trial, whether from other human beings or the devil. Do not take Your help away from us, nor bring upon us heavier tests that are beyond our strength to endure. For we are not capable of overcoming what opposes us; but You, O Lord, are powerful and able to save us from all adversities. In accordance with Your goodness, save us, O God, from the tribulations of this world that we might enter Your holy altar with a clear conscience and without condemnation sing the blessed thrice-holy hymn together with all the angelic powers of heaven. And having celebrated the Divine Liturgy that is well pleasing to You, may we be deemed worthy of eternal life.
For You are holy, O Lord our God, and You dwell and rest in Your saints, and to You we give glory and sing the thrice-holy hymn: to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and forever and to the ages of ages. ... See MoreSee Less
