O venerable and God-bearing our Father Kuksho, monastery of the Dormition of the Mother of God pokhvalo, God-saved city of Odessa unfading flower, meek shepherd of Christ and great prayerbook for us. Fervently we run to you and with a contrite heart we ask: do not take away your protection from our monastery, in which you fought a good fight. Be a good helper to all who live piously and work well in it. O our good shepherd and God-wise priest, Venerable Father Kuksho, look mercifully on the people who are coming, who are praying tenderly and asking for help and intercession from you. Remember all those who have faith and love for you, who call on your name in prayer and come to adore your holy relics, and mercifully fulfill all their good petitions, overshadowing them with your patristic blessing. Deliver, O holy Father, from every slander of the enemy our holy Church, this city, our monastery, and our land, and do not forsake us, who are weak and burdened with many sins and sorrows, through your intercession. O most blessed One, enlighten our minds with the light of the face of God, and strengthen our lives by the grace of the Lord, so that, having been established in the law of Christ, we may flow unflinchingly along the path of the holy commandments. Grant your blessing to us, and to all those who are in distress, who are afflicted with diseases of the soul and body, and grant us healing, consolation, and deliverance. Above all of these, ask us from above the spirit of meekness and humility, the spirit of patience and repentance; those who have turned away from the Orthodox faith and are blinded by pernicious heresies and schisms; enlightenment in the darkness of unbelief by the wandering light of the true knowledge of God; and the quenching of discord and discord. Beseech the Lord God and the Most Holy Mother of God to grant us a quiet and sinless life. Remember us who are unworthy at the throne of the Almighty, and ask for a peaceful Christian end, and vouchsafe us through your help to attain eternal salvation and inherit the Kingdom of heaven, so that we may glorify the great bounties and ineffable mercies of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, who is worshipped in the Trinity by God, and your paternal intercession for ever and ever. Amen.
