Prayer of the Hours
Thou who at every season and every hour, in Heaven and on earth art worshipped and glorified, O Christ God; long-suffering, merciful and compassionate;
Who loves the just and shows mercy upon the sinner;
Who calls all to salvation through the promise of blessings to come.
O Lord, in this hour receive our supplications, and direct our lives according to Thy commandments.
Sanctify our souls. Purify our bodies.
Correct our minds;
cleanse our thoughts;
and deliver us from all tribulations, evil, and distress.
Surround us with Thy holy angels; that, guided and guarded by them, we may attain to the unity of the faith, and unto the knowledge of Thine unapproachable glory.
For Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen.
