Humble Prayer Request for the Protection of His All Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew I and the Patriarchate in Istanbul
by Archimandrite Nektarios Serfes
Boise, Idaho, USA
November 2006

In the Name of the Father,

the Son,

and the Holy Spirit:

Let us pray, unto the Lord!

Look down from heaven O Lord My God,
and be ever merciful until us all,
Thy people, and Thy servants,
to Bless us with Thy right hand.

We call upon Thy Name to be with our Venerable Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew,
and the Sacred Synod of Bishops,
who are wise in guarding and guiding Thy Church the Holy Orthodox Faith we all love.

Help us O Lord from the misery we feel because of the unjust acts of our sins,
do not punish us by hiding from us the sight of Thy Face,
nor chastise us but O Lord our True God,
look upon us all we Thy Faithful,
and our Loving Venerable Patriarch, and his Sacred Holy Synod of Bishops.

Watch over us during the day and in the middle of the night with Thy powerful protection,
punish no one, but help us to pursue peace, love, and good will among all men.

Through the prayers of our holy Master,

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God,

have mercy upon us and Save us!


Please also send letters to the President, your State Senators, and Congressmen. Address for the President of the United States of America for further protection of the Patriarchate, and to reopen Halki Theological Seminary:
