“I Confess with Faith”

St. Nerses Shnorhali the Gracious (1102-1173)

~

A prayer for every hour of the day

~

~

1

I confess with faith and worship you,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

uncreated and immortal Essence,

creator of angels, humans and of all that exists.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

2

I confess with faith and worship you,

O Indivisible Light,

unified Holy Trinity and one Godhead;

creator of light and dispeller of darkness,

dispel from my soul the darkness of sin and ignorance,

and enlighten my mind at this moment,

so that I may pray to you according to your will,

and receive from you the fulfillment of my requests.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

3

Heavenly Father, true God,

who sent your beloved Son to seek the lost sheep.

I have sinned against heaven and before you;

receive me as the prodigal son,

and clothe me with my former garment,

of which I was deprived by sin.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

4

Son of God, true God,

who descended from the bosom of the Father,

and took on flesh from the holy Virgin Mary for our salvation;

crucified, buried, and raised from the dead,

ascended in glory to the Father;

I have sinned against heaven and before you;

remember me like the penitent thief

when you come into your kingdom.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

5

Spirit of God, true God,

who descended on the river Jordan,

and into the Upper Room;

who enlightened me by the baptism of the Holy Font,

I have sinned against heaven and before you.

Purify me again with your divine fire,

as the fiery tongues purified the Holy Apostles.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

6

Uncreated Essence, I have sinned against you,

with my mind, with my soul and with my body,

remember not my former sins

for the sake of your Holy Name.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

7

Beholder of all, I have sinned against you,

in thought, word and deed;

erase the record of my transgressions,

and write my name in the book of Life.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

8

O Searcher of secrets, I have sinned against you,

willingly and inadvertently, knowingly and unknowingly.

Grant forgiveness unto me a sinner;

since from my birth through the holy baptism, until this day,

I have sinned before you Lord,

with all my senses and in all the members of my body.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

9

All-provident Lord,

place your holy awe as a guardian before my eyes,

so that I may not look with askance;

before my ears, not to delight in hearing evil discourses,

before my mouth, not to speak falsehood,

before my heart, not to mediate wickedness,

before my hands, not to commit injustice,

before my feet, not to walk on the paths of iniquity;

rather, guide always my motions,

that they may be according to all your commandments.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

10

O Christ, the quickening fire,

inflame my soul with the fire of your love

that you dispersed over the earth,

so that it may consume the stains of my soul;

cleanse my conscience and my mind,

purify my body from sin,

and kindle the light of your knowledge in my heart.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

11

O Jesus, wisdom of the Father,

grant me the wisdom that I may always

think, speak, and do what is good in your sight;

deliver me from evil thoughts, words and deeds.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

12

Benevolent Lord, your will encompasses all that is good;

you are the director of the will.

Do not let me follow the inclinations of my heart;

rather, guide me to always walk according to your good pleasure.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

13

Heavenly King, grant me your kingdom

which was promised to your beloved,

and strengthen my heart to hate sin,

and to love only you, and to do your will.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

14

Upholder of all creatures,

preserve by the sign of your cross,

my soul and body, from the allurements of sin,

from the temptation of evil, from unjust people,

and from all dangers physical and spiritual.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

15

O Christ, guardian of all,

may your right hand guard and shelter me, day and night;

while at home and while traveling;

while I am sleeping and while I am awake,

so that I may never falter.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

16

My God, inside your open hand

the whole creation is filled with your bounty.

Unto you I commit my being; take care of me

and provide the needful for my soul and body,

from this time forth for evermore.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

17

Finder of the lost,

turn me away from my evil habits to good ones;

and imprint on my soul the dreadful day of death,

the fear of eternal punishment,

and the love of your kingdom,

so that I may repent of my sins,

and I may follow the path of righteousness.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner

˜˜˜˜

18

Fountain of immortality,

cause the tears of repentance to flow from my heart,

like those of Mary Magdalene,

so that before I depart this world,

I may wash away the sins of my soul.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

19

Grantor of mercy,

grant that I may come to you

with true faith, with good works,

and the communion of your Holy Body and Blood.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

20

Benevolent Lord,

commit me to a good angel,

who may deliver up my soul in peace,

and convey it undisturbed

through the malice of evil, to heavenly places.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

21

O Christ, the true Light,

make my soul worthy to encounter with joy

the light of your divine glory,

on the day I will be called by you;

and to rest in good hope,

in the mansions of the righteous,

until the great day of your coming.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

22

Righteous judge,

when you come with the glory of the Father

to judge the living and the dead,

do not enter into judgment with your servant;

but save me from the eternal fire,

and make me worthy to hear

the most blessed call of the righteous

for those who will enter to your heavenly kingdom.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

23

All-merciful Lord,

have mercy on all those who believe in you;

on my beloved ones, and on those who are strangers to me;

on all those I know, and on those unknown to me;

on the living and on the dead;

even forgive my enemies, and those who hate me,

forgive the trespasses they have committed against me;

and relieve them from the malice they bear towards me,

so that they become worthy of your mercy.

Have mercy upon your creatures,

and on me, a manifold sinner.

˜˜˜˜

24

O glorious Lord, receive the prayers of your servant;

and fulfill my requests that are deemed good.

Through the intercession of the Holy Mother of God,

and St. John the Baptist, and St. Stephen the first martyr,

and St. Gregory our Illuminator, and the Holy Apostles,

Prophets, Doctors of the Church,

Martyrs, Patriarchs, Hermits, Virgins,

and all your saints in heaven and on earth.

Unto you, O indivisible Holy Trinity,

be glory and worship, forever and ever. Amen.
