O Lord and Master, Jesus Christ, the living and eternal Son of God,
enlighten our minds to understand Your life-giving words.
Raise us up from the darkness of sin which ruins the soul.
Make us worthy to become upright in good deeds.
At the time of Your coming to judge the world,
make us worthy of hearing that voice full of joy, saying,
“Come to Me you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you before the foundation of the world.”
The Absolution of the Midnight Hour, Agpeya
