Dear Members of the Byzantine Forum,
I am looking for the Slavonic of this Prayer After Confession of St. John Damascene found in the Byzantine Daily Worship's "Office of Penance". Could someone provide me with the Slavonic prayer or know from what source Archbishop Raya translated this prayer into English?
"O my God and Lord Jesus Christ, lead me in your way that I may walk in your truth; gladden my heart that I may fear your holy name. O Lord so mighty in mercy, so gracious in your might; assist and comfort me; save me, for I put my trust in your holy name. In your wrath, do not let me perish, O Lord and Lover of us all, but show me your great mercy and compassion. O Physician and Healer of my soul, O merciful Savior, blot out all my transgressions, for in the depth of my heart I am sorry for having offended you. Grant me your grace, that I may avoid my earlier and evil ways; give me the strength, O Mighty One, to withstand the temptations before which I am weak; keep me under your protection, and under the shadow of your wings, so that I may serve you faithfully, praise You, and glorify your name all the days of my life."
With my thanks,
