Prayer from the Liturgy of Addai and Mari

June 4, 2008

The Lord Himself blessed us with all spiritual blessings in the heavens, through Jesus Christ our Lord, and prepared us for His kingdom, and called us to the desirable good things which neither cease nor perish, as He promised to us in His life-giving Gospel. Jesus said to the blessed congregation of His disciples, “Truly, truly I say unto you, that everyone who eats my body and drinks my blood, abides in Me, and I in him, and I will raise him up at the Last Day; and he comes not to judgment, but I will make him pass from death to eternal life.” May He Himself now bless this congregation, and maintain our position, and render glorious our people who have come and rejoiced in receiving His renowned, holy, life-giving, and divine mysteries. May we be sealed and guarded by the holy sign of the Lord’s cross from all evils, secret and open, now and always. Amen.

(From “The Lord Will Answer)
