Third Prayer of St. Macarius the Great
Orthodox Prayer Book
Having risen from sleep I hasten to Thee, O Lord, Lover of men, and by Thy
loving-kindness I strive to do Thy work, and I pray to Thee: help me at all times,
in everything, and deliver me from every evil thing of the world and every attack of
the devil, and lead me into Thine eternal Kingdom. For Thou art my Creator, the
Giver and Provider of everything good, and all my hope is in Thee, and to Thee I
send up glory, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.
