1 The Coptic Book Of Hours

2 Introduction To Every Hour In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one God. Amen. *Prostration* Kyrie eleison, Lord have mercy, Lord bless us. Amen. *Prostration* Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen. *Prostration*

3 The Lord’s Prayer Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one, through Christ Jesus our Lord. For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

4 The Prayer Of Thanksgiving Let us give thanks unto the Beneficent and Merciful God, the Father of our Lord, and God and Savior, Jesus Christ. For He has covered us, supported us, preserved us, accepted us unto Him, had compassion on us, sustained us, and brought us unto this hour. Let us then ask Him, the Almighty Lord our God, that He may keep us in all peace this Holy day and all the days of our life. O Master, Lord, God Almighty, Father of our Lord, and God and Savior Jesus Christ

5 we thank You upon every condition, for any condition, and in whatever condition. For You have covered us, supported us, preserved us, accepted us unto You, had compassion on us, sustained us and brought us unto this hour. Therefore, we pray and entreat Your goodness, O Lover of mankind, grant us to complete this holy day, and all the days of our life in all peace with Your fear. All envy, all temptation, all the working of Satan, the intrigue of wicked people, the rising up of enemies, hidden or manifest, take away from us, and from all Your people, and from this, Your holy place. Whereas of the things that are suitable and useful to us give us provision. For You are He who gave us the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions and every power of the enemy.

6 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one, through the grace, mercy and love of mankind of Your Only-Begotten Son, our Lord, and God and Savior, Jesus Christ; through whom glory, honor, dominion and worship befit You, with Him and the Holy Spirit, the Life-giver who is of one essence with You, both now and ever, and unto the age of all ages, Amen.

7 Psalm 50 Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your unfailing love; according to Your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, so that You are proved right when You speak and justified when You judge. Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Surely You desire truth in the inner parts. You teach me wisdom in the inmost place. Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones You have crushed rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity.

8 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from Your presence or take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners will turn back to You. Save me from bloodguilt, O God, the God who saves me, and my tongue will sing of Your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise. You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; You do not take pleasure in burnt offerings. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise. In Your good pleasure make Zion prosper; build up the walls of Jerusalem.

9 Then there will be righteous sacrifices, whole burnt offerings to delight You; then bulls will be offered on Your altar. Alleluia.

10 The Eleventh Hour

11 The prayer of the Eleventh Hour of this blessed day we offer to Christ our King and our God, beseeching Him to forgive us our sins. From the Psalms of our father David the Prophet and the king. May his blessings be with us all. Amen. *Prostration*

12 Psalm 120 I lift up my eyes to the hills, from where my help shall come. My help shall come from the Lord, who made the heaven and the earth. He will not let your foot be moved; and your keeper will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel shall not slumber nor sleep. The Lord shall keep you: cast a shelter upon your right hand. The sun shall not burn you by day, neither the moon by night. The Lord shall keep you from all evil: He shall keep your life. The Lord shall keep your coming in and your going out, from this time forth and forevermore. ALLELUIA. *Prostration*

13 Psalm 127 Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in His ways. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table. Thus is the man blessed who fears the Lord. May the Lord bless you from Zion all the days of your life; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem, and may you live to see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel. Alleluia. *Prostration*

14 Psalm 128 They have greatly oppressed me from my youth, let Israel say, they have greatly oppressed me from my youth, but they have not gained the victory over me. Plowmen have plowed my back and made their furrows long. But the Lord is righteous; He has cut me free from the cords of the wicked. May all who hate Zion be turned back in shame. May they be like grass on the roof, which withers before it can grow; with it the reaper cannot fill his hands, nor the one who gathers fill his arms. May those who pass by not say, ''the blessing of the Lord be upon you; we bless you in the name of the Lord.'' Alleluia. *Prostration* Abolution

15 Holy, Holy, Holy. A passage from the Gospel according to Saint Luke (4:38-41), may his blessings be upon us all. Amen. Jesus left the synagogue and went to the home of Simon. Now Simon's mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her. So He bent over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up at once and began to wait on them. When the sun was setting, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying His hands on each one, He healed them. Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, ‘‘You are the Son of God!'' But He rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew He was the Christ. Glory Be To God Forever, Amen

16 We worship You, O Christ, with Your Good Father and the Holy Spirit for You (have come) and saved us. Have mercy on us. *Prostration*

17 The Litanies for Vespers Prayer If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will I, a sinner, appear? I did not endure the burden nor the heat of the day because of the weakness of my humanity. But, O merciful God, consider me with those of the eleventh hour. For behold, I was conceived through sins, and in sins my mother gave birth to me. Therefore, I dare not lift up my eyes to Heaven but rely on Your boundless mercy and Your love for mankind, crying out saying, "God forgive me, a sinner, and have mercy on me.”

18 Hasten to me, O Savior by opening Your Fatherly bosom for I wasted my life in desires and lust and the day has passed me by and departed. Therefore, I now rely on the richness of Your never-ending compassion. Do not forsake a submissive heart craving for Your mercy. For to You I cry with humility, "Father, I have sinned against Heaven and before You and am not worthy to be called Your son, but make me as one of Your hired servants."

19 Every iniquity I did with diligence and activity, and every sin I committed with eagerness and enthusiasm, and for every suffering and condemnation I deserve. Therefore, O Lady the Virgin, prepare for me the ways of repentance. For to you I implore and ask your supplication to help me lest I fall into shame. Attend to me when my soul departs my body. Defeat the conspiracies of the enemies and shut the doors of Hades lest they swallow my soul O blameless Bride for the True Bridegroom.

20 O Lord, hear us, have mercy on us and forgive us our sins. Amen. Lord Have Mercy. [41times]

21 Holy Holy Holy Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord of Hosts, heaven and earth are full of Your Glory and Your Honor. Have mercy on us O God, the Father Almighty. O Holy Trinity have mercy on us. O Lord of hosts be with us. For we have no supporter in our tribulations and adversaries but You. O God, absolve, remit and pardon our transgressions which we have committed voluntarily and involuntarily, knowingly and unknowingly, hidden and manifest. O Lord, remit them for the sake of Your holy name, that is called upon us. According to Your mercy, O Lord, and not according to our sins

22 The Absolution Of Vespers Prayer We thank You, our compassionate King, for You have granted us to pass this day in peace, and brought us thankfully to this evening, and made us worthy to see the light until evening. Lord, accept our glorification, which is offered now, and save us from the trickeries of the adversary, and abolish all the snares set against us. Grant us that the upcoming night be peaceful, and without pain, restlessness, fatigue, or desires; that we may pass it in peace and chastity, and arise for prayers and praises, at all times and at all places, glorifying Your holy name in everything together with the Father who is incomprehensible and without beginning and the Holy Spirit, the Life-giver who is one essence with You, both now and ever and unto the age of all ages, Amen

23 The Conclusion Of Every Hour Have mercy on us, O God, and have mercy on us. You who, at all times, and at every hour, in Heaven and on earth are worshipped and glorified. O Christ our good Lord, who is long-suffering, plenteous in mercy and most compassionate, who loves the righteous and has mercy on sinners, of whom I am the first; Who does not wish the death of a sinner, but rather to return and live; Who calls everybody to salvation through the fulfillment of the promised rewards.

24 The Conclusion Of Every Hour Accept, O Lord, our prayers at this hour and at every hour. Ease our lives, and guide us to carry out Your commandments. Sanctify our souls, cleanse our bodies, straighten our thoughts, purify our intentions, heal our sicknesses, forgive our sins and deliver us from every sadness and heartache. Surround us with Your Holy angels so that we may be kept and guided in their camp, to attain the union of faith and the knowledge of Your unfelt and unbounded glory, for You are eternally blessed, Amen.

25 Personal Prayers

26 The Lord’s Prayer Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one, through Christ Jesus our Lord. For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. *Prostration*
