Prayer to St. Innocent, First bishop of Irkutsk

Nov 26 and Feb 9

Saint of God, good pastor, faithful worker in the vineyard of Christ, Hierarch and Father, Innocent!

Look down upon this city and its people,

and pray to Christ our God to keep thy flock safe from the wolves that would destroy it:

may He send down His Holy Spirit to make us walk wisely before Him in all devotion and purity all the days of our life:

so that, glorifying His all-holy name day and night,

we may be found worthy to be heirs also of life eternal,

and may praise the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages.
