Saturday Synaxis

Most high God, our loving Father, infinite in majesty, we humbly beseech Thee for all Thy servants everywhere, that Thou wouldst give us a pure mind, perfect love, sincerity in conduct, purity in heart, strength in action, courage in distress, self-command in character.... Grant us pardon of our sins; perfect our work; accept our prayers; protect us by Thine own Name, O God of Jacob. Remember all Thy people everywhere, give us all the grace of devotion to Thy will; fulfill our desires with good gifts, and crown us with Thy mercy.... Grant that, being delivered from all adversity, and both here and eternally justified, we may praise Thee forever and ever, saying Holy, Holy, Holy; through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, who with Thee and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
