Prayer of St John of Kronstadt

mutual love, pure Christian life, the softening of their hearts, and the cessation of self-love, hard-heartedness, covetousness, greediness, envy...

St John of Kronstadt

The Prayer of the Third Hour, of St Basil the Great

O Master, God the Father Almighty; O Lord, Jesus Christ, the Only-begotten Son; and Thou, O Holy Spirit; One Godhead and One Power; Have mercy on me a sinner, and by those judgments which Thou knowest save me, Thine unworthy servant; For blessed art Thou unto the ages. Amen.
