Sixth Hour on Thursday
Let a good memory be made in the four quarters of the creation of the pure virgin Mary, who became the mother of God, and
he honored and magnified her memory; may her prayer be a stronghold to us.
Glory be to the Father...
By the prayer of the prophets and apostles, and the martyrs who were slain in your hope and the holy fathers and the
doctors of orthodox faith, make your peace and tranquility to dwell in the four quarters of the creation.
The above selected prayers are taken from the Book of Common of the Syrian Church, otherwise known as
the Shimo Namaskaram as translated by Bede Griffiths from Syriac to English. A full copy of the rich
prayers of our tradition can be purchased directly from the publishers at Gorgias Press.
