MORNING PRAYERS
Prayer of St. Basil the Great to the Most Holy Trinity
Orthodox Prayer Book

As I rise from sleep I thank Thee, O Holy Trinity, for through Thy great goodness
and patience Thou wast not angered with me, an idler and sinner, nor hast Thou
destroyed me in my sins, but hast shown Thy usual love for men, and when I was
prostrate in despair, Thou hast raised me to keep the morning watch and glorify
Thy power. And now enlighten my mind's eye and open my mouth to study Thy
words and understand Thy commandments and do Thy will and sing to Thee in
heartfelt adoration and praise Thy Most Holy Name of Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.
