Aposticha Prayers

The Aposticha Prayers for the Vespers on Friday Evening of the 2nd Week of Great Lent:

Now is the acceptable time, now is the day of salvation. In your mercy visit my soul and take away the burden of my transgressions, O You who alone are the Lover of mankind.

To you I have lifted up my eyes, to You who live in heaven. Behold: the eyes of the servants are turned to the hands of their masters, and the eyes of the maid-servants to the hands of their mistresses: thus do our eyes watch the Lord our God until He takes pity on us.

Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us, for we have been filled with shame: our soul has been filled to overflowing. May scorn befall detractors, and humiliation come to the proud.

You are glorified, O Christ our God, in the memory of Your saints; through their intercession, send down Your great mercy upon us all.

O Theotokos, our Hope and our protection, we do not fear the plotting of the Enemy, for you are the protectress of our souls.
