O Most Holy Trinity, have mercy on us. O Lord, blot out our sins. O Master, pardon our iniquities. O Holy One, visit and heal our infirmities for Thy name’s sake.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Lord, have mercy. Thrice. Father (Master), bless.

Prayers after meals:

It is truly meet to bless thee, the Theotokos, ever-blessed and mostblameless, and Mother of our God. More honourable than the Cherubim, and beyond compare glorious
than the Seraphim, who without corruption gavest birth to God the Word, the very Theotokos, thee do we magnify.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Lord, have mercy. Thrice. Father (Master), bless.

Through the prayers of our holy fathers, O Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us. Amen.
