☦ Eastern Orthodox Prayer for Protection Against the Coronavirus.

O God Almighty, Lord of heaven and earth, and of all creation visible and invisible, in Thine ineffable goodness, look down upon us, Thy people gathered in Thy Holy Name. Be our helper and defender in this day of affliction. Thou knowest our weakness. Thou hearest our cry in repentance and contrition of heart. O Lord who lovest mankind, deliver us from the impending threat of the Coronavirus. Send Thine angel to watch over us and protect us. Grant health and recovery to those suffering from this virus. Guide the hands of physicians and preserve those who are healthy. Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace that together we may glorify Thy most honorable and majestic name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Great Vespers for Feastday of the Annunciation~

Tone 6 - Lord, I call upon Thee, hear me; hear me, O Lord. Lord I call upon Thee, hear me; receive the voice of my prayer, when I call upon Thee. Hear me, O Lord.

Tone 6 - Let my prayer arise in Thy sight as incense, and let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice. Hear me, O Lord.

Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord, keep watch over the door of my lips; incline not my heart to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds in company with men who work iniquity, and I will not join their chosen ones. Let a good man strike or rebuke me in mercy, but let the oil of the wicked never anoint my head. For my prayer is continually against their evil deeds. When they are given over to those who shall condemn them, my words will be heard then, as a rock which one cleaves and shatters on the land, so shall their bones be strewn near hell. But my eyes are toward Thee, O Lord; Lord, in Thee I seek refuge. Do not take away my soul, keep me from the trap they have laid for me, and from the snares of evil-doers. Let the sinners together fall into their own nets, let me alone pass through. I cry with my voice to the Lord, with my voice I make supplication to the Lord. I pour out my complaint before Him; I proclaim my sadness before Him. When my spirit departs from me, Thou knowest my way. In the path where I walk they have laid a trap for me. I look to the right and watch, but there is none who knows me; no refuge remains for me; no man cares for my soul. I cry to Thee, O Lord, I say: Thou art my hope, my portion in the land of the living. Give heed to my cry, for I am brought very low. Deliver me from my persecutors, for they are too strong for me. Bring my soul out of prison that I may give thanks to Thy Name. The righteous will surround me; for Thou wilt deal bountifully with me. Out of the depths I cry to Thee, O Lord. Lord, hear my voice!
