Our Morning Offering – 6 July
PRAYER by ST BASIL THE GREAT (329-379) Doctor of the Church
O Christ, our Master and God,
King of the ages and Creator of all,
I thank You for all the good things that You have given to me
and for the reception of your most pure and life-giving mysteries.
I pray You, therefore, O good Lover of Humankind,
keep me under Your protection in the shadow of Your wings.
Grant that with a pure conscience, until my last breath,
I may worthily partake of Your Holy Things,
for the forgiveness of sins and for life everlasting.
For You are the Bread of Life,
the Fountain of Holiness
and the Bestower of Blessings
and to You we give glory together
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
now and for ever and ever, amen.
