A Prayer to the Theotokos for Healing

Prayer to the Theotokos for Healing

Where bitter sorrows overcome us,

there will patience and rest be revealed.

Where the torment of despair dwells in the soul,

there will shine the ineffable Light of Divinity!

Console the fainthearted, strengthen the weak,

bestow softening and enlightenment upon embittered hearts.

Heal thine ailing people, O All-merciful Queen!

Bless the minds and hands of our physicians,

that they might serve as instruments

of the All-powerful Physician, Christ our Savior.

We pray before thine Icon,

that thou mightest truly live with us, O Sovereign Lady!

Stretch out thy hands, filled with healing and cures,

O Joy of the sorrowful, Consolation in afflictions,

that having speedily received miraculous help,

we may glorify the Life-creating and Undivided Trinity:

The Father, and The Son, and The Holy Spirit,

unto the ages of ages, 

Amen.

Troparion For The Mother of God, Searcher For The Lost

20171015_110947

Within the temple, O Temple of Life, 
you found Him whom the universe could not contain,
silencing the teachers by the word of God,
Which is above the wisdom of the wise.

O all-pure Mother of God,
cease not seeking your children who are lost,
that we may treasure Christ in our hearts,
and find eternally our Father’s house. 

Let Us Pray For Those Whom are “Lost”

20171015_110947

Let us pray for those whom are wandering lost. Let us pray for the intercession of The Theotokos, Searcher for the Lost for those that are wandering in depression, lost in addictions or (seemingly) unbreakable destructive habits, those separated from God’s Holy Church, etc… let us pray for those whom we love, the stranger, our “enemies” and even ourselves, that the lost may be found and guided back to the path that leads to our Father’s house!

Within the temple, O Temple of Life,
you found Him whom the universe could not contain,
silencing the teachers by the word of God,
Which is above the wisdom of the wise.

O all-pure Mother of God,
cease not seeking your children who are lost,
that we may treasure Christ in our hearts,
and find eternally our Father’s house.
