Prayer to St. Herman, Archbishop of Kazan and Sviyazhsk

O Saint Herman of Christ, God-wise founder of this monastery, spiritual leader of the monks, who instructs all the faithful by the example of your Christ-like life, both in your life and after your death! We run to you and fervently pray to you: make us holy through your prayers, so that by the grace of God we also may be built up into the abode of the Holy Spirit, and through the following of your life we may be made into the image of Christ, the image of reverence and righteousness, and be overshadowed by the power of your favorable prayers, and bear the fruits of good works, pleasing above all, love Him and fulfill His holy will, serve for the good of our neighbors and fully contribute to your salvation, on the path of a long-suffering life, by enduring all kinds of hardships, sorrows, and hardships. And that we may bear the good yoke of Christ in our infirmities, pray, O holy One of God, that our infirmity may be strengthened by help from above, that the Lord may deliver us from enemies visible and invisible, from the consumption of fire and water, from the unsolvable air and pernicious winds, and even more so from the soul-destroying flames, the drowning and harrowing of our passions, yes, under the roof of of the goodness and mercy of God, let us live a quiet and silent life, waiting for the blessed appearance of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to Whom, together with the Father and His Holy Spirit, honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. O Prelate Herman, great saint of Christ, founder of this monastery of the God-wise, mentor of monastics and guardian of this city, do not slumber, stand with your holy soul on the throne of the Holy Trinity in heaven, and rest in your incorruptible body in your monastery, and perform many miracles through your prayers! Look upon us and upon all the people who flow to your holy sepulchre and your intercession to the Lord for the needs that support you. Because of the multitude of our sins, we are not exactly unworthy to offer the voice of prayer with boldness, but to raise our eyes lower to heaven; but you, as you have acquired boldness, offer warm prayers to the Lord for all those who come to your honest race, so that we may be delivered from famine, flood, coward, fire, and sword May we be delivered from all diseases of the soul and body, and work for the Lord who stands before Us, and enter into endless rest, and together with you glorify all the good givers of God, always, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen. O great saint of Christ, Herman, warm prayer book for us to the Lord, intercessor for all who flow to you in sorrow, ask for help in our infirmities, comfort in our sorrows, and health in our infirmities of soul and body; beseech the Lord to grant us forgiveness in all who have sinned from our youth in this life by deed, word, and thought and with all our feelings, and at our end, ask us for a time of repentance, so that, having preceded the exodus of our souls by sincere confession of sins and purification of conscience, we may pass away safely from the ordeal of the air and be delivered from condemnation and torment, by the grace of the Beginningless Father, the grace of the Most-begotten Son, and the sanctification of the ever-present Spirit. Amen. O great saint of Christ, Herman! Ask us, the servants of God (names), from the Lord for help in our infirmities, comfort in our sorrows, and health in our infirmities of mind and body: beseech Him to grant us the remission of all who have sinned from our youth in this life and at our end ask us for a time of repentance, so that by sincere confession of our sins we may forestall this, and pass away by the grace of the Father without Beginning, by the grace of the Son without Beginning, and by the sanctification of the Ever-present Spirit, to the ages of ages.
