The everyday prayer of Saint hierarch Philaret of Moscow

God, I don`t know what to ask from You. You know what I need, You love me much more than I can love myself.

Father, give to Your servant the things he doesn`t know how to ask for. I don`t dare to ask neither for a cross nor for a comfort: I only stand before You. My heart is open to You; You see my needs I don`t know. See and act according to Your mercy. Hit me and heal me, bring me down and raise me up. I am shaken and piously silent before Your holy will and Your ways which are impenetrable for me.

I bring myself as an oblation and have no other desire than to fulfill Your will; teach me how to pray, pray inside me by Yourself!
