Priest: Blessed is our God, at all times, now and always, and for ever and ever. Amen.

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord, have mercy.

O Lord Almighty and Master of all, the healer of every illness and weakness: heal also this your handmaid (Name), and raise her from her bed. Protect her and the child born of her. Keep her under the shelter of your wings from now to the end of her life, through the prayers of the all-pure Mother of God and of all the saints. For You are blessed forever and ever. Amen.

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord, have mercy.

Master, Lord our God, You were born of our all-pure Lady, the Mother of God and ever-virgin Mary; as a babe You lay in a manger, and as a child you were nursed at the breast: Therefore, have mercy on this your handmaid who has given birth to this child. Preserve the child born of her from all sickness and accident, from every attack of the enemy and from evil spirits of the day, and of the night. Keep her under your mighty hand; grant her a speedy recovery and remove her pains; grant that she may have health, and strength of soul and body. Gladden her with the presence of joyful and radiant angels. Preserve her from every attack of invisible spirits. Guard her against disease and weakness, jealousy and envy. Have mercy on her and on her child in your great mercy. Remove the various inward troubles which take hold of her and in your loving kindness quickly strengthen her weak body. Grant that the child born of her may worship You in your church on earth which You have ordained for the glorification of your holy name.

For all glory, honor and worship are your due, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always, and forever and ever. Amen.

The Priest blesses a glass of water saying:

O Lord, our holy God, who created the universe from nothing and imposed limits upon the waters by the wisdom of your power, bless + this water, and sanctify it by the power, action and descent of your all-holy, good, and life-giving Spirit. May it bring protection for your servants from all harm, from the destruction of evil, and freedom from superstition. May it bring healing for the sick. Make it be a redemption of sins, a cure for the suffering, a purification of soul and body and a sanctification of homes. And may it bring healing for the general welfare of all. Grant sanctification, blessing and health to all those who receive and make use of it.

For through this, your name will be glorified, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever. Amen.

The Priest gives the holy water to the woman to drink and with whatever remains, he blesses the whole house, saying:

Glory to You, O Christ God, our hope, Glory to You!

May Christ our true God have mercy on us and save us through the prayers of his all-pure Mother, of his holy and glorious Apostes who are worthy of all praise, and of all the saints, for He is good and loves mankind.

Through the prayers of our holy fathers, O Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.

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.
