Prayer to the Lord Who was born
by St. Nikodemos of the Holy Mountain
Jesus, Son of the Father without mother according to divinity, I glorify You the eternal Who is above every entreaty and word.
Jesus, Son of a Mother without father according to humanity, I glorify You Who became man for us.
Jesus, Emmanuel unchanged, for You are the Angel-bearer of the great message of salvation, I thank You for Your great love for man.
Jesus, spotless Lamb of God, I ever confess You, for I am the lost sheep.
Jesus, most-compassionate Comforter, make the grace of your Spirit to work within me.
Jesus, new Adam, take from me the old man, and establish in me the new.
Jesus, You Who descended to earth, make me worthy to have my habitation in the heavens.
Jesus, You Who took on the human nature make me a partaker in the grace of theosis.
Jesus, my breath, come to visit me.
