Daily Prayers from the Ethiopian Tewahedo Orthodox Church

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, One God.

+ Lord pity us, Lord spare us, Lord have Mercy on us, Amen.

+ Glory to the Father, Glory to the Son and the Holy Spirit now and forever and ever, world without end, Amen.

I believe and offer my supplications unto the Holy Trinity.

I denounce Satan in the sight of the Holy Mother Orthodox Church. And in the presence of the Virgin Maryam, who is Zion for ever and ever. Amen

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven, give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us and rescue us from all evil; for thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and forever. Amen

O Holy Virgin Maryam in the peace of the Angel Gabriel, peace be unto thee. Thou are Virgin in Spirit as well as in body O thou Mother of Perfect God, peace be unto thee, Blessed are thou amongst women and Blessed is the fruit of thy womb. Rejoice, O thou who are full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Ask and pray for us to thy Beloved Son, Eyesus Kristos, that he may have mercy upon our souls and forgive us our sins. Amen

We believe in one God, The Father Almighty maker of Heaven of Earth and all things visible and invisible. And we believe in the Lord Eyesus Kristos, the only begotten Son of the Father who was with the Father before the creation of the world. Light from Light, True God from True God,
begotten, not made, of one essence with the Father by whom all things are made, and without Him was not anything in Heaven or Earth made. Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from Heaven was made man and was incarnated from the Holy Spirit and from the Holy Virgin Maryam. He was crucified for our sake in the days of Pontius Pilate, suffered, died, was buried, and rose from the dead on the third day, as was written in the Holy Scriptures.
He ascended into Heaven into Glory. He sat at the right hand of the Father and will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead. And there is no end of His kingdom. We believe in the Holy Spirit the Lord, the giver of life who proceeded from the Father. We worship and glorify Him with the Father and the Son who spoke by the Prophets. And we believe in one Holy Universal Apostolic Church. And we believe in one baptism for the remission of sins and wait for the resurrection from the dead, Life to come. World without end. Amen. 

Holy, Holy, Holy, perfect Lord of Hosts, Heaven and Earth are Full of the Holiness of thy glory.
We worship thee, Eyesus Kristos, with thy merciful and Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit, the Life giver, for thou did come and Save us.

I offer one worship to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. (repeat 3x)

Being one, He is three and being three He is one. They are three in persons and one in Godhead.

I worship before our Lady Maryam, Virgin and Mother of God, who is pure in flesh and in her soul.

I worship before the cross of our Lord Eyesus Kristos, which was sanctified by his precious blood.

The Cross is our Might,
The Cross is our Strength.
The Cross is our Ransom,
and the Cross is the Medicine of our Soul.

We who have believed in Him are saved by the power of His cross

Glory be to the Father, Glory be to the Son, Glory be to the Holy Spirit (3x)

It is due to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (3x)

Glory be to our Lady Maryam, Virgin and Mother of God. It is due to our Lady Maryam, Virgin and
Mother of God.

Glory be to the cross of our Lord, Eyesus Kristos. It is due to the cross of our Lord,
Eyesus Kristos.

Let Christ remember us in his mercy. Amen.
And not neglect us in his second coming. Amen.
Let Him awaken us in order that we may thank His name. Amen.
Let Him make us firm in His worship. Amen.
Our Lady Mariam, lift our prayers. Amen.
Ask forgiveness for all our sins. Amen.
Before the throne of our Lord. Amen.

To Him who gave us this bread.
For his mercy endures forever.
And to Him who gave us this cup.
For his mercy endures forever.
And to Him who have given us our food
and clothing.
For His mercy endures forever.
And to Him who endures all our sins.
For His mercy endures forever.
And to Him who gave us His Holy flesh
and His precious blood
For His mercy endures forever.
To Him who saved us from death.
For His mercy endures forever.
And to Him who preserves us to this
very moment.

To Him let us give glory, giving thanks to God the Most High, and let us give thanks
to His mother and His Honorable Cross.

Peace be unto you, while honoring you our mother Maryam, we beseech you. We trust you to save us from evil beasts. For the sake of Hanna, thy mother and father Iyakem. O Virgin Maryam, today bless our congregation.

(Prayer of Virgin Maryam)
Saint Luke Chapter 1 verses 46-55

And the Virgin Maryam said, my soul
Does magnify the Lord.
My spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
For he has regarded the low estate of his
handmaiden; for behold from henceforth
all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty has done to me
great things; and Holy is His name.
And mercy is on them that fear Him from
generation to generation. He has showed
strength with His arm; He has scattered
the proud in the imagination of their
hearts. He has put down the mighty from
their seats, and exalted them of low
He has filled the hungry with good things;
and the rich he hath sent away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel, in
remembrance of His mercy.
As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham,
and to his seed forever and ever. Amen
