Prayer to the All-Holy Theotokos in honor of the Kazan Icon
22 of October/4 of November and 8/21 of July
O all-holy Lady,,Mistress Theotokos! Falling down before they precious and wonder-working icon with fear, faith and love, we beseech thee: turn not thy face away from them that have recourse unto thee. Entreat the Lord Jesus Christ, thy Son and our God, O merciful Mother, that He preserve our land in peace, that He confirm the rule of our lawful civil authorities, that He maintain His holy Church inviolable, and deliver it from unbelief, heresies, and schism. For we have no other help, we have no other hope than thee, O all-pure Virgin: thou art the almighty helper and aid of Christians. Deliver thou all that pray to thee from sinful falls, from assault by evil men, from all temptations, sorrows, sickness and tribulations, and from sudden death. Grant us the spirit of contrition, humility of heart, purity of thought, correction of our sinful life, and remission of transgressions, that, hymning thy mighty works and the mercies manifested over us here on earth, we may be accounted worthy also of the kingdom of heaven, and may glorify there, with all the saints, the all-honorable and majestic name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
