Orthodox Prayers


Heavenly King

O Heavenly King, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, Who art everywhere and fillest all things. Treasury of blessings, and Giver of Life, come and abide in us, and cleanse us from every impurity, and save our souls, O Good One!

Our Father

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

The Holy Theotokos and Ever Virgin Mary

Rejoice! O Virgin Theotokos! Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with You. Blessed are You among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, for You have born the Savior of our souls!


O blessed Theotokos, open the doors of compassion to us whose hope is in You, that we may not perish but be delivered from adversity through You, Who are the salvation of the Christian people.


It is truly meet to bless You, O Theotokos, ever blessed and most pure, and the Mother of our God. More honorable then the Cherubims, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphims, without defilement You gave birth to God the Word, true Theotokos, we magnify You!

The Symbol of Faith

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible: And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-begotten, Begotten of the Father before all ages, Light of Light, True God of True God, Begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made: Who for us men and for our salvation came down from the heavens, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man; And was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried; And rose again on the third day, according to the Scriptures; And ascended into the heavens, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father; And shall come again, with glory, to judge both the living and the dead, Whose kingdom shall have no end. And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, Who spake by the Prophets; In One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. I Confess one Baptism for the remission of sins. I look for the Resurrection of the dead, And the life of the age to come, Amen.
