John Chrysostom, Prayer for Sunday 9-4-2022
I praise and magnify and glorify you, O Lord my God, that you have made me, unworthy as I am, worthy this day to be in fellowship with you. For this reason, I ask you to keep me with your holiness every day and during the whole time of my life. So that, bearing in mind your clemency, I may become living in you, who for our sakes suffered, and died, and rose again.
Do not let, O Lord my God, the Destroyer come near my person, signed with your precious blood. Almighty God, cleanse me from all my dead works; for you alone are without sin. Guard my life, O Lord, from all temptation, and let my adversary turn back from me ashamed and confused, as often as he rises against me. Guard the goings of my mind and of my tongue, and all the walks of my body. Be every day with me according to your never-failing promise, that “Whoever dwells in me and I in him.” You said so, O lover of men; establish the word of your divine and abiding commands. For you are the God of mercy, of pity, who loves men, and the giver of all good things; and unto you belong glory with the Father and your most Holy Spirit, now and ever, world without end.
