Prayer to St. Anthony, Wonderworker of the Caves

O our good shepherd and mentor, ever-remembered primordial Russian monk, venerable and God-bearing Father Anthony! You are woe in heaven, we are down on earth, removed from you not only by a place, but by our sinful uncleanness, and remembering your fatherly love for our kindred people, we fall down and pray to you with emotion and faith: help us sinners, be cleansed by repentance, and be worthy of mercy and forgiveness from our Lord and Creator. Beseech His goodness to grant us great and rich mercies: fruitfulness of the earth, prosperity of the air, deep peace, sincere brotherly love, unfeigned piety, contentment in the needs of life, and let us not turn to evil the good things bestowed upon us from His generous right hand, but to the glory of His holy name and to our salvation. Preserve us all, O Saint of God, through your holy intercession. Preserve, O holy wonderworker, through your merciful prayers your monastery, our whole country unharmed from all evil, and all the people who live in your monastery, and who come to worship in it, fall with your heavenly blessing, and grant them consolation, deliverance, and healing in their sorrows, troubles, and illnesses. We praise and magnify the Lord who has glorified you, who through you is wonderfully beneficent to us, the Father without Beginning, His Only Begotten Son, and His Consubstantial Spirit, the Life-giving and Undivided Trinity, and your holy intercession, to the ages of ages. Amen.
