For You, O name of boldness to Him, can beseech Him, that He may grant us in our life good and all things, which are for our benefit and preparation for eternal life. O good and faithful servant of God, true disciple of Christ, chosen vessel of the Holy Spirit, wonderworker Stephen, we fervently beseech thee: make us sinners partakers of the gifts of grace, in which God has made thee rich, and wake us up in God as a guide to a God-pleasing life, calmer of the tempest of passions, helper in sorrows and troubles, and intercessor from the enemy visible and invisible: that we also, who have passed this life’s course God-pleasing, through your intercession and your God-pleasing prayers, may be heirs of the kingdom of God, and may be worthy together with you to stand before the throne of the King of glory, to Whom all glory, honor, and power belong for ever and ever. Amen.
