Prayers in the Coptic liturgy


We also ask the Almighty God, the Father of our Lord God and Saviour, Jesus Christ. We ask and entreat Your goodness O Lover of mankind; Remember O Lord the souls of your servants who departed, our fathers and our brethren. Graciously, O Lord, grant repose to their souls in thebosom of our fathers the Saints Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Sustain them in a place of green pastures and still waters in the Paradise of Joy, in the light of Your saints, where neither sorrow, distress nor sighing exist.

Raise their bodies on the day You have appointed according to Your faithful and true promises. Grant them Your blessed promises, which eyes have not seen, nor ears heard, nor have occured to the heart of man. The things which You O LORD have prepared for those who love Your Holy Name.



For there is no death for Your servants, but merely a departure. Forgive them any negligence or carelessness that they have overlooked as they are mortal humans living in flesh. So You O Lord, the good and Lover of mankind Your Christian Orthodox servants who lived in the world from East to West and from North to South, each one in his or her name. Graciously O LORD, grant repose and forgiveness to them all. For none is undefiled even if he

lives a single day on earth. As for those, O Lord, whom You have taken their souls, grant them repose and grant that they may deserve the Kingdom of Heaven. As for us, grant us, O Lord, Christian perfection which pleases You. Grant them and us, a share and inheritance with all Your saints.


Remember O Lord those who are sick among Your people.


Bestow on them mercies and compassion, heal them, take away from them, and from us, every sickness, the spirit of illness; do cast away. Those who have long lain ill, raise and comfort 12 them. Liberate all those who are afflicted with unclean spirits. Free all those in prison or in dungeons or in exile or captivity, or those who are arrested in bitter bondage, have mercy upon them; for You are the deliverance of the chained and supporter of

the fallen. The hope of the hopeless, the help of the helpless, the consolation of the weak hearted, the harbour of those who are in the storm. All the restrained and distressed souls, O Lord give them mercy, give them repose, give them calmness, give them grace, give them help give them salvation, give them forgiveness 0f their sins and iniquities. And we too, O Lord, heal the illnesses of our souls and cure those of our bodies.

You are the true physician of our souls and bodies and the provider for all flesh, nurture us with Your salvation.




Bless this church which extends from one end of the world to the other. Bless all peoples and all flocks; send your heavenly peace into our hearts. We also ask you to grant us the peace of this life. Crown with peace the head of our nation, the rulers and the chiefs, the military forces, the councilors, the multitudes, and our neighbours. O King of peace, grant us your peace, for you are the provider of all things. Adopt us unto You, O God Our saviour, for we do not know any one else but You.

Your Holy name is the One we utter. May our souls be sustained with your Holy Spirit. Prevent the second death from overpowering us and all your people.




We ask and entreat Your goodness, O Lover of mankind, remember O Lord, our fathers and brethren who are travelling. Those intending to travel anywhere facilitate their ways, whether by sea, rivers, lakes, roads, by air, or by any other means. Bring them back to a harbour of peace, a harbour of salvation. Graciously accompany them in their embarkation and their travel. Bring them back to their homes, in safety and joy. Participate with Your

servants, in every good deed. We also, O Lord, as foreigners in this world, preserve us without harm, tribulations, or wory until the end.



We ask and entreat Your goodness, O Lover of mankind, remember, O Lord, the oblations, the offerings and the thanksgiving of all those who have offered them for the honour and glory of Your Holy Name.


Accept them to You on Your Holy eloquent and heavenly altar, as fragrance of incense, which enters to Your majesty in heaven, through the ministry of Your holy angels and archangels. Accept also the offerings of Your

servants, as You have accepted the offerings of the righteous Abel, and the sacrifice of our father Abraham, and the two mites of the widow.


Those who have offered much, or little, the hidden and the manifest. Those who wish to offer but have none, and those who have offered to you these oblations this day, grant them incorruptible instead of the corruptible; the

heavenly instead of the earthly, the eternal instead of the temporal. Fill their houses and stores with all blessings. Surround them, O Lord, by the power of Your holy angels and archangels. As they have remembered Your

holy Name on earth, also remember them in Your kingdom; and do not forsake them in this age. Through the grace, mercy ... etc.


Lord, by Your grace protect us this night from sin. You are the blessed God of our fathers. Your Holy Name is full of glory

forever. Amen. Let Your mercy on us, be as great as our reliance on You, because all eyes are gazing with hope towards You. You

give us food in due season. Hear us, our Lord and Saviour, because You are the hope of the world, You alone are able to protect and save us from this generation and even unto eternity, Amen. Blessed are You, Lord, teach me Your justice. Show me Your will, enlighten me to Your goodness. Your mercy is everlasting.

Do not reject what You have made with Your own hands because You are my refuge from generation to generation. I cried to the Lord: I have sinned against You, have mercy upon me and save my soul. Save me Lord, for I am seeking

You. Teach me to do Your will, for You are my Lord, You have the spring of life, through Your light we see light, let Your mercy come to those who know You and Your goodness to those who are pure in heart. Blessing praise and glory are due to You, O

Father and Son and Holy Spirit who has been since the beginning, now and forever. Amen. It is good to confess to the Lord and praise Your name. O most High, Your mercies are declared in the morning and Your justice every night.



Let us sing with the angels: Glory be to God in the highest, peace on earth, goodwill towards men. We praise You, we bless You, we serve You, we worship

You we confess to You, we proclaim Your glory, and we thank You for Your great glory. O Lord, the Heavenly King, God the Father Almighty, and our Lord the only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

O Lord, the Lamb of God and the Son of the Father, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us, accept our

supplications. You, Who sits at the right hand of the Father, have mercy upon us. For You alone are Holy. You alone are the Most High my Lord Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit.


Glory be to GOD the Father. Amen. I give You blessing daily, and praise Your Holy Name forever and ever. Amen. Since the night, my spirit seeks You early, O my God, for Your commandments are the light that shines on the earth. Continually

I pursue Your ways for You became a help to me. Early, my Lord, You shall hear my voice. Tomorrow, I stand before You and

You shall see me.



Holy God, Holy Almighty, Holy Immortal who was born of the Virgin, have mercy upon us. Holy God, Holy Almighty, Holy Immortal who was crucified for our sake, have mercy upon us. Holy God, Holy Almighty, Holy Immortal who arose from the

dead and ascended to the heavens, have mercy upon us.


Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and forever more. Amen. O Holy Trinity, have mercy upon us. O Holy Trinity, have mercy upon us. O Holy Trinity, have mercy upon us. O Lord, forgive us our sins. O Lord, forgive us

our trespasses. O Lord, forgive us our transgressions. O God, be with those who are sick, heal them for the sake of Your Holy Name. O Lord repose the souls of those who have passed over to You. O Lord, who is without fault, have mercy upon us, support

us and accept our prayers, for Thine is the glory, honour and triple holiness. Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord bless us. Amen.


Blessed are you, O Mary The prudent and the chaste, The second tabernacle The spiritual treasure,


The pure turtle-dove that declared in our land And brought unto us The Fruit of the Spirit The Spirit of The Comforter That came upon your Son In the waters of the Jordan As in the type of Noah.

For Noahs dove Has declared unto us The peace of God Towards mankind. Likewise you our hope The symbolic turtle-dove, Have brought Mercy unto us Carrying Him in your womb;

Jesus our Lord The Only-begotten of the Father Was born of you And set us free.


Let us all declare With all our hearts And our tongues too Proclaiming and saying, O our Lord Jesus Christ Make in us a sanctuary For Your Holy Spirit Ever glorifying You.
