Wednesday, December 24th, 2003 - Prayer of the Week on the Three Holy Youths in Daniel 3: 1-30

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy!

O Lord You are an all consuming fire. You can also enlighten those who are in darkness. You can set us on fire and we will not be consumed. Your incarnation was an example to us for the Holy Theotokos was not consumed by Your presence in her womb. We pray we will not be consumed by Your fire but receive the power of the Holy Spirit like the three Holy Youths walking, singing Your praises and witnessing to You in the fiery furnace. We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

Wednesday, December 17th, 2003 - Prayer of the Week on Luke 14: 16-24

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy!

O Lord You are always calling us to take up our cross and follow You. You have invited us to Your supper which will take place when Your kingdom comes. Our participation in this liturgy is but a foreshadow of that heavenly supper. We have made excuses not to attend and when attending we have come without proper preparation. Help us to change and begin a new so when you ask us to come we will accept and taste of Your mystical supper. We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2003 - Prayer of the Week on Luke 13: 10-17

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy!

O Lord You made the Sabbath day for us, not we for the Sabbath. You commanded that it be a day of rest, reflection and of doing good works. You want us to remember You and give thanks for Your blessings.

We have sinned by not keeping it Holy, by forgetting its purpose and turning it into a day of sport if we keep it at all. We pray for forgiveness for our lack of gratitude. Heal us as You healed the woman bent over for 18 years. Help us to return to the true nature and practice of the day as the eternal day in which Your rose from the dead and sent Your Holy Spirit upon Your Apostles. We pray that You will send Your Holy Spirit upon us and on the offering of bread and wine to transform them into Your body and blood which we take to the healing of our soul and body. We pray in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit Amen.
