Our Morning Offering – 18 August – Tuesday of the Twentieth week in Ordinary Time and the Memorial of Saint Macarius the Wonder-Worker (Died 850) Monk, Abbot, Defender of Icons, miracle worker
To You, O Master
By St Macarius the Wonder-Worker (Died 850)
To You, O Master,
who loves all mankind
I hasten on rising from sleep.
By Your mercy,
I go out to do Your work
and I make my prayer to You.
Help me at all times and in all things.
Deliver me from every evil thing of this world
and from pursuit by the devil.
Save me and bring me to Your eternal kingdom,
For You are my Creator,
You inspire all good thoughts in me.
In You is all my hope
and to You I give glory,
now and forever.
