Monday March 31st, 2003 - Prayer of the Week on the veneration of the Holy Cross Mark 8:34-9:1.

Let us Pray to the Lord. Lord have Mercy.

O Lord You paid the ultimate price for us. You laid down Your life so that we could have eternal life. As we begin this fourth week of Lent help us to take to heart the meaning of self denial. Show us the way to lay down our life in doing works of charity, alms giving, fasting and prayer. May we be numbered among those who have not lost their soul but have built treasures in heaven. We pray in the name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit Amen.

Monday March 24th, 2003 - Prayer of the Week.

Let us Pray to the Lord. Lord have Mercy.

O Lord, grant wisdom and discernment to those who govern us. Protect the men and women in the military services. Be merciful to all who suffer in this war and bring healing, hope and consolation. O Lord, You commanded us to love or enemies and to do good to those who hate us and pray for them. We pray for the innocent men, women and children of Iraq and in the Middle East that You will protect them and bring a quick end to all hostilities. That You will restore all nations to reconciliation, blessing our land and every nation with lasting peace for You are the Prince of Peace and it is to You that we give glory, honor and worship to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Monday March 17th, 2003 - Prayer of the Week from the Vespers of Orthodox Sunday.

Let us Pray to the Lord. Lord have Mercy.

O Lord, though infinite in Your divine nature, You condescended to be incarnate in these later days, You became finite, for by putting on the human body You put on also its nature. Therefore we present the likeness of Your image, and venerate it in honor of You, as we follow the divine traditions of the Apostles we pray that we will ascend towards Your love and partake of the grace of healing. We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

Monday March 10th, 2003 - Prayer of the Week - on verses from the Matins service for the begining of Lent.

Let us Pray to the Lord. Lord have Mercy.

O Lord we thank you for the arena of virtues which is called Great Lent. Help us in our struggle for the prize. Direct us to this noble task so that we will strive rightly and be justly crowned. As we take up the armor of the cross and do battle against the Devil, let our faith be an invincible rampart, prayer our breastplate, our helmet the giving of alms and fasting the sword which will cut away all evil from our hearts. We pray in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit Amen.

Wednesday March 5th, 2003 - Prayer of the Week for a Children Sermon on Meatfare Sunday

Let us Pray to the Lord. Lord have Mercy.

O Lord our God. Help us to make our spirit healthy. May we learn to forgive those who have hurt us. Help us to fast with joy knowing that what we give up here we will gain in heaven. Guide us in our prayer so that we pray in the Spirit which will reveal You as the way, the truth and the life. We pray in the name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit Amen.
