Prayer to the Holy Martyr Abramius

Holy Martyr Abramie, good soldier of Christ the King of Heaven, our most glorious helper and defender in sorrows and adversities! But nothing can separate thee from the love of the Lord Jesus, nor flattering promises of temporal blessings, nor reproach, nor torment from the evil enemies of the most holy faith of Christ; thou, like a lion, hast come forth to battle against the wolves of thought, the spirits of malice, who have moved the Bulgarian people of one tribe against thee for the sake of thy good confession, and Like an arrow of fire, thou hast smitten them by the power of the grace of the Holy Spirit, and strong as death in thy love for God. Even though thou didst shed thy blood for Christ our God, and didst destroy the temporal life, yet with an immortal soul, like an eagle, thou didst soar up to the heights of our Father’s abode, inheriting there eternal life, glory, and unspeakable bliss, and leaving us thy incorruptible remains, like a much-valued and fragrant vine. We believe, holy passion-bearer, that standing with the angels and all the saints before the throne of the glory of the Tri-Hypostatic God, you offer up fervent and God-pleasing prayers not only for us, for this holy monastery and our city, but also for the entire holy Church of Christ and for the Russian Orthodox state. We believe, most glorious wonderworker, that you, by the power of the almighty Lord Jesus Christ, through your holy relics, give out abundant gifts of grace-filled help for the salvation of all who flow to you in faith, and above all ask for the end of those who honor you with repentance, and help the infirm infants with all your heart, so that all of us, from small to great, may with one accord glorify the inscrutable greatness of goodness God’s will. With the same faith and love for your holy relics, we beseech you, our good prayerbook and intercessor in heaven, to help us sinners and the humble through your prayers in all our sorrows, needs and circumstances, and to preserve us, this holy monastery and this city, from all evil and all adversity, and above all, to protect us, this holy monastery and this city, from all evil and all adversity. help us to our eternal salvation and all those who ask for your help and intercession. To her, we humbly beseech thee, O servant of God, beseech Christ our God, that He may give peace and quiet to all Orthodox Christians, and that He may turn away from us all wrath that is moved against us, and deliver us from the snares of the enemy, from the torment of sin, and from the torments of hell, and that He may make us worthy to stand at His right hand in judgment And to enter into the eternal rest of His saints, who celebrate the unceasing voice and the ineffable sweetness of those who see the goodness of His countenance; and so we may with you and all the saints endlessly glorify the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, the Trinity Consubstantial and Undivided. Amen.
