Divine Liturgy - Prayer of the Ambon

O Lord who bless those who bless you, and sanctify those who trust in You, save your people and bless your inheritance; safeguard the fullness of your Church; sanctify those who love the beauty of your house; in return, raise them to glory by your divine power and do not forsake us who put our hope in You. Give peace to your world, to your Churches, to your priests, to our public servants, to the government and to all who protect us, and to all your people: for every good gift and every perfect grace is from above, coming down from You, the Father of Lights; and to You we send up, glory and thanksgiving and worship, to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and always and for ever and ever. Amen.

People's response: (Three times)

Blessed be the name of the Lord henceforth and for ever (English)
Li yakon ism ur-Rabbi mubarakan min al-ana wa ilad-dahr. (Arabic)
He yee to onoma Kyriou evloghimenon apo tou neen keh eos tou eonos. (Greek)

When Prayer of the Ambon is Said

In the Liturgy of Our Father among the Saints John Chrysostom, during the Liturgy of Thanksgiving after Holy Communion is distributed, the prayer of the Ambon is said.

The Prayer of the Ambon is said aloud by the priest outside the bema
or another way of saying the above statement is:
the priest goes through the Holy Doors of the ikonostasis and stands before the ikon of Our Lord, God, and Saviour, Jesus Christ in the ikonostasis. Then, the priest recites this prayer aloud.

Name of Prayer

"Prayer of the Ambon" is also named "Prayer before the Ambo".

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
