According to the Hours of the Day and Night
  1. O Lord, deprive me not of Thy heavenly blessings;
  2. O Lord, deliver me from eternal torment;
  3. O Lord, if I have sinned in my mind or thought, in word deed, forgive me.
  4. O Lord, deliver me from every ignorance and heedlessness,
    from pettiness of the soul
    and stony hardness of heart;
  5. O Lord, deliver me from every temptation;
  6. O Lord, enlighten my heart darkened by evil desires;
  7. O Lord, I, being a human being, have sinned;
    do Thou, being God, forgive me in Thy lovingkindness,
    for Thou knowest the weakness of my soul.
  8. O Lord, send down Thy grace to help me, that I may glorify Thy holy Name;
  9. O Lord Jesus Christ, inscribe me, Thy servant, in the Book of Life,
    and grant me a blessed end;
  10. O Lord my God, even if I have done nothing good in Thy sight,
    yet grant me, according to Thy grace,
    that I may make a start in doing good.
  11. O Lord, sprinkle on my heart the dew of Thy grace;
  12. O Lord of heaven and earth, remember me, Thy sinful servant,
    cold of heart and impure, in Thy Kingdom.
  13. O Lord, receive me in repentance;
  14. O Lord, leave me not;
  15. O Lord, save me from temptation;
  16. O Lord, grant me pure thoughts;
  17. O Lord, grant me tears of repentance, remembrance of death, and the sense of peace;
  18. O Lord, grant me mindfulness to confess my sins;
  19. O Lord, grant me humility, charity, and obedience;
  20. O Lord, grant me tolerance, magnanimity, and gentleness;
  21. O Lord, implant in me the root of all blessings: the fear of Thee in my heart;
  22. O Lord, vouchsafe that I may love Thee with all my heart and soul, and that I may obey in all things Thy will;
  23. O Lord, shield me from evil persons and devils and passions and all other lawless matters;
  24. O Lord, Who knowest Thy creation and that which Thou hast willed for it;
    may Thy will also be fulfilled in me, a sinner,
    for Thou art blessed forevermore. Amen.
