Antiphon Prayers for Weekdays

Antiphon Defination

Antiphon are psalm text in the Divine Liturgy. They are sung by the two choirs of the church alternating the verses.

1.
O Lord God, who keep all things in your divine hands; who treat us with patience and forgive our sins, remember your mercy and compassion; visit us in your kindness; protect our lives by the grace of your Holy Spirit, for You are merciful and love mankind and we render glory to You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever.

2.
O Lord God, teach us your righteousness, your commands and your statutes. Illumine the eyes of our minds. Keep every darkness away from our hearts. Bestow upon us the sun of justice. Protect our lives from every evil by the seal of your Holy Spirit, so that we may give a good defense before the judgement seat of your Christ, for yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever.

3.
O Christ God, true Light, who illumine and sanctify every human being coming into the world, let the light of your countenance shine upon us, so that we may see the awesome Light of your Divinity. Direct our steps to the fulfillment of your commands, for You are our salvation, O Christ God, and to You we render glory and to your Eternal Father and All-holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever.

4.
O Christ God, grant your servants a prompt and steadfast consolation when our souls are despondent. Do not abandon us in time of ordeals. Do not keep away from us in tribulations, but always rescue us promptly. Come close to us, You who are present in all places. And as You always were with Your Disciples, so be also with those who long for You, for You are our life and our salvation and to You we render glory and to your Eternal Father and All-holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever.

5.
O God, Lord of Sabaoth, who loved us so much as to send your only Son for the salvation of our human race, do not let our hearts be inclined to evil words and thoughts, but overwhelm our hearts with longing for You. Guide us by your Light, so that we may walk in the way of your commands and attain eternal life, for You are good and love mankind and we render glory to You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever.

6.
O Lord God who by nature are good and rich in compassion, deliver us, who implore your name, from the darkness of our sins. Justify us by faith, make us rejoice in grace and act in hope, for You love mankind and we render glory to You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever.

7.
O God who wish for all mankind to be saved, behold us. Listen to our supplication. Do not despise our tears. Accept our sighing. Grant us your mercy and your love. Make us worthy of your holy Sacraments, for You are a merciful God and we render glory to You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever.

Saturdays or Memorial Liturgies

8.
O Lord God, give rest to the souls of your servants in the city of the living, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You love mankind, remit to them all the sins of their life, for You alone are without sin, and You are the Master of all living and deceased, and to You we render glory, thanksgiving and worship, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever.

9.
O Lord, Lover of Mankind, give rest in the City of the Living, in the Dwelling of the Just, to your departed servants whose memory we celebrate today. And if they have sinned during their life, forgive them in your compassion and grant the world your great mercy, for You are our life and our resurrection, O Christ God, and to You we render glory and to your Eternal Father and All-holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever.

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.
