Prayer to the Holy Martyr Kuksha

Holy Passion-bearer, priestmartyr Kukshe, who performed apostolic feats in the midst of the habitation of your fellow tribesmen, our ancestors, whom you enlightened with the light of true Knowledge of God, and by the grace of the Holy Spirit drove out the demons, brought rain from heaven, dried up the earth, and performed many miracles, sealing your long-suffering feat with a martyr’s end! Accept from us fervent and tender prayers and lift me up to the throne of the Holy Trinity, where you stand in the person of the saints, so that by your intercession the merciful Lord may strengthen the spirit of faith and piety in the children of the holy Orthodox Church, and in her pastors may he increase zeal for the edification of the flock, and may He look with a merciful eye your help. By God’s holy servant! In these, for the sake of your sufferings, which are great, your prayer to the Master’s well-being can do much. For this reason, as your children by faith, we fall down to the shrine of your precious and many-healing relics, which were bestowed by the all-merciful providence of God and with the blessing of the First Hierarch of Kiev to the Church for our sanctification and as a sign of your intercession for us, we beseech you in a contrite and humble spirit: do not despise our supplications poured out before you, To the all-merciful God, like a fragrant censer, may His grace rest on this city through your intercession, in which your most glorious name is honored, and may the people who live in it be preserved from famine, fire, deadly plagues and vain deaths, from all kinds of troubles and misfortunes. Help, Holy Martyr Kukshe, through your holy prayers to the honest brotherhood of this holy temple dedicated to your name, that it may multiply and flourish for the glory of the Triune God, for the praise of your name, and for the good of the holy Orthodox Church, so that all who are protected by your intercession may live peacefully and piously, glorifying and giving thanks to the One true God, in the Holy To the Trinity we glorify the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
