Saturday Synaxis

O God born of God, true God of the true God born, you are goodness itself, we confess it. In your kindness come to our aid. Be merciful and hide us under the shadow of your wings. We are as servants in your hands: prevent us from rebelling against your sovereignty. We know that you are just: show us your justice, Lord. We know that you are our Savior: deliver us, save us from evil. We acknowledge your holiness: make us holy through your body and blood. Grant us forgiveness, kind God, merciful as you are to sinners. Amen.

- Ephrem the Syrian
