An Orthodox Christian Prayer to Theotokos
" Every iniquity I did with prudence and activity, and every sin I
committed with eagerness and diligence, and of all torment and
judgement I am worthy.
Therefore, prepare for me the ways of repentance, O Lady the
Virgin; for to you I appeal, and through you I seek intercession, and
upon you I call to help me, lest I might be put to shame.
And when my
soul departs my body attend to me, and defeat the conspiracy of the
enemies, and shut the gates of Hades, lest they might swallow my soul,
O you, blameless bride of the true Bridegroom."
