Three Prayers For Every Orthodox Christian Household


Prayer When We Light an Oil Lamp 
or a Candle In Our Homes

Let our light so shine before men, that they may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven.

Prayer When We Light Incense In Our Homes

Let my prayer be set forth before You as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. Hear me, O Lord.

We offer you this incense, Christ our God, as a fragrant spiritual aroma; accept it upon your heavenly altar, and send down upon us the Grace of Your All-Holy Spirit.

Prayer When We Drink Holy Water

Lord make this to be for me a source of incorruption, a gift of sanctification, a deliverance from sins, an averting of diseases, to be unapproachable by hostile powers, filled with angelic strength.

ΠΡΟΣΕΥΧΗ ΟΤΑΝ ΑΝΑΒΟΥΜΕ ΤΟ ΚΑΝΔΗΛΙ 
Ἢ ΕΝΑ ΚΕΡΙ ΣΤΟ ΣΠΙΤΙ ΜΑΣ

Οὕτω λαμψάτω τὸ φῶς ἡμῶν ἔμπροσθεν τῶν ἀνθρώπων, ὅπως ἴδωσιν ἡμῶν τὰ καλὰ ἔργα καὶ δοξάσωσιν τὸν Πατέρα ἡμῶν τὸν ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς.

ΠΡΟΣΕΥΧΗ ΟΤΑΝ ΘΥΜΙΑΤΙΖΟΥΜΕ ΣΤΟ ΣΠΙΤΙ

Κατευθυνθήτω ἡ προσευχή μου ὡς θυμίαμα ἐνώπιόν σου· ἔπαρσις τῶν χειρῶν μου θυσία ἑσπερινή, εἰσάκουσόν με, Κύριε.

Θυμίαμά σοι προσφέρομεν, Χριστὲ ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, εἰς ὀσμὴν εὐωδίας πνευματικῆς· ὃ προσδεξάμενος εἰς τὸ ὑπερουράνιόν σου Θυσιαστήριον, ἀντικατάπεμψον ἡμῖν τὴν χάριν τοῦ Παναγίου σου Πνεύματος.

ΠΡΟΣΕΥΧΗ ΟΤΑΝ ΠΙΝΟΥΜΕ ΑΓΙΑΣΜΟΝ

Κύριε, ποίησον αὐτὸ καὶ δι᾿ ἐμὲ «Ἀφθαρσίας πηγήν, ἁγιασμοῦ δῶρον, ἁμαρτημάτων λυτήριον, νοσημάτων ἀλεξιτήριον, δαίμοσιν ὀλέθριον, ταῖς ἐναντίαις δυνάμεσιν ἀπρόσιτον, ἀγγελικῆς ἰσχύος πεπληρωμένον».
