.WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for Monday September 9, By Marty Martel.


Hello to everyone.  I am once again later than I like to be in sending out my thought for the day, but I try not to miss a day, except Sundays, when I feel that the thought for the day is The Lord’s Day of Rest and your thoughts are no doubt automatic.  Hope your day has been great so far and I know you are being blessed by our Good Lord.  And it is hot today in Tennessee, I mean real hot, but….

Prayer of St. Basil the Great


God and Lord of the Powers, and maker of all creation,

Who, because of your clemency and incomparable mercy,

Sent your only-begotten son and our Lord Jesus Christ for the salvation of mankind,

And with his venerable cross tore asunder the record of our sins,

And thereby conquered the rulers and powers of darkness:

Receive from me, a sinful person, O merciful Master,

These prayers of gratitude and supplication,

And deliver me from every destructive and gloomy transgression,

And from all visible and invisible enemies who seek to injure me.

Nail down my flesh with fear of you. And do not let not my heart be inclined

To words or thoughts of evil, but pierce my soul with your love,

That always contemplating you, being enlightened by you,

And discerning you, the unapproachable and everlasting Light,

I may unceasingly confess my misdoings and show my gratitude to you:

The eternal Father, with your only-begotten Son,

And with your all-holy, gracious, and life-giving Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages.
