Prayer at Daybreak

In the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

O Lord Eternal and Creator of all things,
Who of Thine inscrutable goodness
called me to this life;
Who bestowed on me the grace of Baptism
and the Seal of the Holy Spirit;
Who imbued me with the desire to seek Thee,
the one true God;

Hear my prayer.
I have no life,
no light,
no joy or wisdom,
no strength except in Thee, O God.

Because of my unrighteousness,
I dare not raise my eyes to Thee.

But Thou said to Thy disciples,
"Whatsoever you shall ask in prayer believing,
you shall receive." and
"Whatsoever you shall ask in my name,
that will I do."

Wherefore I dare to invoke Thee.
Purify me from all taint of flesh and spirit.
Teach me to pray aright.
Bless this day which Thou givest unto me,
Thine unworthy servant.

By the power of Thy blessing
enable me at all times to speak and act to Thy glory
with a pure spirit,
with humility,
and wisdom,
aware always of Thy presence.

Of Thine immense goodness, O Lord God,
show me the path of Thy will,
and grant me to walk in Thy sight without sin.

O Lord, unto Whom all hearts be open,
Thou knowest what things I have need of.
Thou art acquainted with my blindness
and my ignorance,
Thou knowest mine infirmity
and my soul's corruption;

But neither are my pain and anguish hid from Thee.

Wherefore I beseech Thee,
hear my prayer
and by Thy Holy Spirit,
teach me the way wherein I should walk;
and when my perverted will
would lead me down other paths,
spare me not, O Lord,
but force me back to Thee.

By the power of Thy love,
grant me to hold fast to that which is good.

Preserve me from every word
or deed that corrupts the soul;
from every impulse
unpleasing in Thy sight
and hurtful to my brother-man.

Teach me what I should say
and how I should speak.

If it be Thy will that I make no answer,
inspire me to keep silent in a spirit of peace
that causes neither sorrow
nor hurt to my fellow man.

Establish me in the path of Thy commandments
and to my last breath let me
not stray from the light of Thine ordinances,
that Thy commandments
may become the sole law of my being
on this earth and all eternity.

Yea, Lord, I pray to Thee,
have pity on me.

Spare me in my affliction
and my misery
and hide not the way of salvation from me.

In my foolishness, O God,
I plead with Thee for many and great things.

Yet am I ever mindful of my wickedness,
my baseness, my vileness.

Have mercy upon me.

Cast me not away from your presence
because of my presumption.

Do Thou, rather, increase in me this presumption,
and grant unto me, the worst of men,
to love Thee as Thou hast commanded,
with all my heart,
and with all my soul,
and with all my mind,
and with all my strength:
With my whole being.

Yea, O Lord, by Thy Holy Spirit,
teach me good judgment and knowledge.

Grant me to know Thy truth
before I go down into the grave.

Maintain my life in this world
until I may offer unto Thee worthy repentance.

Take me not away in the midst of my days,
nor while my mind is still blind.

When Thou shalt be pleased
to bring my life to an end,
forewarn me
that I may prepare my soul
to come before Thee.

Be with me, O Lord,
at that dread hour
and grant me the joy of salvation.

Cleanse me from secret faults,
from all iniquity that is hidden in me;
and give me a right answer
before Thy judgment-seat—.

Yea, Lord,
of Thy great mercy
and immeasurable love for mankind,
incline Thine ear and hear my prayer.

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

Ὅλα ἀρχίζουν ἐδῶ

Κάθε λογισμὸς καὶ κάθε αἴσθηση ὁδηγοῦν σταδιακὰ τὴν ψυχὴ εἴτε πρὸς τὸν παράδεισο εἴτε πρὸς τὴν κόλαση.

Ἄν ὁ λογισμὸς εἶναι ἔλλογος, τότε συνδέει τὸν ἄνθρωπο μὲ τὸν Θεὸ Λόγο, μὲ τὸν ὕψιστο Λογισμό, μὲ τὴν Παναξία, πρᾶγμα ποὺ εἶναι ἤδη ὁ παράδεισος.


Ἐάν πάλι εἶναι ἄλογος ὁ λογισμὸς ἤ καὶ παράλογος, τότε συνδέει ἀναπόφευκτα τὸν ἄνθρωπο μὲ τὸν Παράλογο, τὸν Ἀνόητο, μὲ τὸν διάβολο, πρᾶγμα ποὺ εἶναι ἤδη ἡ κόλαση.

Ὅσα ἰσχύουν γιὰ τὸν λογισμὸ, ἰσχύουν καὶ γιὰ τις αἰσθήσεις. Ὅλα ἀρχίζουν ἐδῶ, ἀπὸ τὴν γῆ: καὶ ὁ παράδεισος μὰ καὶ ἡ κόλαση τοῦ ἀνθρώπου.

Αγίου Ιωάννου Χρυσοστόμου

Ἐγὼ πατὴρ, ἐγὼ ἀδελφὸς, ἐγὼ νυμφίος, ἐγὼ οἰκία, ἐγὼ τροφὴ, ἐγὼ ἱμάτιον, ἐγὼ ῥίζα, ἐγὼ θεμέλιος, πᾶν ὅπερ ἂν θέλῃς ἐγώ· μηδενὸς ἐν χρείᾳ καταστῇς. Ἐγὼ καὶ δουλεύσω· ἦλθον γὰρ διακονῆσαι, οὐ διακονηθῆναι. Ἐγὼ καὶ φίλος, καὶ μέλος, καὶ κεφαλὴ, καὶ ἀδελφὸς, καὶ ἀδελφὴ, καὶ μήτηρ, πάντα ἐγώ· μόνον οἰκείως ἔχε πρὸς ἐμέ. Ἐγὼ πένης διὰ σέ· καὶ ἀλήτης διὰ σέ· ἐπὶ σταυροῦ διὰ σὲ, ἐπὶ τάφου διὰ σέ· ἄνω ὑπὲρ σοῦ ἐντυγχάνω τῷ Πατρὶ, κάτω ὑπὲρ σοῦ πρεσβευτὴς παραγέγονα παρὰ τοῦ Πατρός. Πάντα μοι σὺ, καὶ ἀδελφὸς, καὶ συγκληρονόμος, καὶ φίλος, καὶ μέλος. Τί πλέον θέλεις; τί τὸν φιλοῦντα ἀποστρέφῃ; τί τῷ κόσμῳ κάμνεις; τί εἰς πίθον ἀντλεῖς τετρημένον;  περισσότερα »»»

Υπεραγία Παρθένος Θεοτόκος Μαρία

Κύριος διασκεδάζει βουλὰς ἐθνῶν, ἀθετεῖ δὲ λογισμοὺς λαῶν καὶ ἀθετεῖ βουλὰς ἀρχόντων· ἡ δὲ βουλὴ τοῦ Κυρίου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα μένει, λογισμοὶ τῆς καρδίας αὐτοῦ εἰς γενεὰν καὶ γενεάν. (Ψαλ. 32, 10-11)

εἰ δέ τις τῶν ἰδίων καὶ μάλιστα τῶν οἰκείων οὐ προνοεῖ, τὴν πίστιν ἤρνηται καὶ ἔστιν ἀπίστου χείρων. (Τιμ.Α 5,8)

Ἅγιος Ἀντώνιος ὁ Μέγας

Οἱ ἄνθρωποι καταχρηστικά λέγονται λογικοί. Δεν εἶναι λογικοὶ ὅσοι ἔμαθαν ἀπλῶς τὰ λόγια καὶ τὰ βιβλία τῶν ἀρχαίων σοφῶν, ἀλλ' ὅσοι ἔχουν τὴ λογικὴ ψυχὴ καὶ μποροῦν νὰ διακρίνουν ποιὸ εἶναι τὸ καλὸ καἰ ποιὸ τὸ κακό καὶ ἀποφεύγουν τὰ πονηρὰ καὶ βλαβερὰ στὴν ψυχή, τὰ δὲ ἀγαθὰ καὶ ψυχωφελῆ, τὰ ἀποκτοῦν πρόθυμα μὲ τὴ μελέτη καὶ τὰ ἐφαρμόζουν μὲ πολλὴ εὐχαριστία πρὸς τὸν Θεό. Αὐτοὶ μόνοι πρέπει νὰ λέγονται ἀληθινὰ λογικοὶ ἄνθρωποι.

St Antony the Great

Ἐφ᾿ ὅσον ἐννοεῖς τὰ περὶ Θεοῦ, νὰ εἶσαι εὐσεβής, χωρὶς φθόνο, ἀγαθός, σώφρων, πράος, χαριστικὸς κατὰ δύναμιν, κοινωνικός, ἀφιλόνεικος καὶ τὰ ὅμοια. Διότι αὐτὸ εἶναι τὸ ἀπαραβίαστο ἀπόκτημα τῆς ψυχῆς, νὰ ἀρέσει στὸ Θεὸ μὲ τέτοιες πράξεις καὶ μὲ τὸ νὰ μὴν κρίνει κανέναν καὶ νὰ λέει γιὰ κανέναν, ὅτι ὁ δείνα εἶναι κακὸς καὶ ἁμάρτησε. Ἀλλὰ καλλίτερο εἶναι νὰ συζητᾶμε τὰ δικά μας κακά, καὶ νὰ ἐρευνᾶμε μέσα μας τὴ δική μας πολιτεία, ἐὰν εἶναι ἀρεστὴ στὸ Θεό. Διότι, τί μᾶς μέλει ἐμᾶς, ἐὰν ὁ ἄλλος εἶναι πονηρός;

Ἅγιος Ἰουστῖνος Πόποβιτς

Ἡ αἰωνιότητα εἶναι φρικιαστικὴ δίχως Θεάνθρωπο, γιατὶ καὶ ὁ ἄνθρωπος εἶναι φοβερὸς δίχως τὸν Θεάνθρωπο. Καθετὶ τὸ ἀνθρώπινο, μονάχα στὸν Θεάνθρωπο ἔχει τὴν τελικὴ καὶ λογικὴ του ἑρμηνεία. Δίχως τὸν θαυμαστὸ Κύριο Ἰησοῦ Χριστό, ὅλα τὰ ἀνθρώπινα μεταβάλλονται ἀναπόφευκτα σὲ χάος, σὲ φρίκη, σὲ θάνατο, σὲ κόλαση: ἡ φρόνηση σὲ ἀφροσύνη, ἡ αἴσθηση σὲ ἀπόγνωση, ἡ ἐπιθυμία σὲ αὐτοδιάσπαση μέσα ἀπὸ τὴν αὐτοθέωση ἤ τὴν αὐτοεξουθένωση.
