Ninth Hour on Sunday
With the blessed martyr who loved you, and with the saints, who were pleasing to you by their way or life, make memory
of our departed; grant them to stand at your right hand, halleluia, and give them rest
Glory be to the Father...
The holy church beseeched you on behalf of her children, while she cries in pain and says: Let them not inherit
Gehenna, Lord, who were clothed in you in the waters of baptism, halleluia, and let them be raise up by you.
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.
