Heavenly King, Advocate, Spirit of truth, present everywhere, filling all things; Treasury of blessings and Giver of life, come and dwell in us, cleanse us from every stain, and, O good One, save our souls. Amen. 

Orthodox Daily Prayer

 

When the beauty and the fragility of life stop us in our tracks,
when the cruelty and injustices of life confront us with deep questions,
when our walking and living is energised and purposeful,
when our feet falter and our hearts are hesitant,
when our souls are attuned in hope to singing and dancing,
when our spirits are crushed and we feel alone in our despair,
let us turn to you, ever-present and constant companion.
Whatever this day's journey requires of us,
remind us of earthly companions and colleagues,
mentors and loved ones, seen and unseen, who journey with us,
pilgrims on a shared journey into your depths and fullness, O God,
and accept our profound wonder and thanks. Amen.
