Prayer to St. Sava the Sanctified

O venerable and all-laudable servant of God, Venerable Father Savvo! Today in your holy temple, standing reverently before your holy icon and joyfully celebrating your all-bright memory, we bless you as our intercessor. But honoring your great boldness before the Lord, we humbly beseech you, most blessed, to accept mercifully from us this song of praise, which we offer to you out of love and zeal. And, as you have great boldness toward the Lord, do you try to ask your God-pleasing intercession from the King of kings and the Lord of Lords, so that He may bestow His great and rich mercy on us sinners, so that He may give us the spirit of right faith, the spirit of knowledge and love, the spirit of peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, and deliver us may all useful things come down to the salvation of our souls. May He send down peace, quiet, serenity, zeal for the fulfillment of His commandments, and abundance of earthly fruits to all Orthodox Christians; may he deliver the whole Russian country from famine, cowardice, flood, fire, sword, foreign invasions, and internecine warfare, deadly plagues, and all evil. To her, God’s servant! Do not despise our supplications, but hear us who pray to you, and under the shelter of your intercession keep us (and this monastery) unobtrusive from enemies visible and invisible, so that we may be worthy to end our life in repentance and receive eternal good in the kingdom of Christ our God, where we will praise with you and all the saints the venerated name of the Most Holy Trinity, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.
