A Prayer of Saint Chrysostom is the next element in Morning Prayer.

A Prayer of St. Chrysostom is said by all those gathered along with the pastor or leader

Almighty God, You have given us grace in our time of need to bring before You our common requests; and promise that when two or three are gathered together in Your name You will grant their requests; fulfill now, Lord, the desires and petitions of Your servants in ways that are most suitable for them; granting us in this world knowledge of Your truth, and in the world to come life everlasting. AMEN.

Saint John Chrysostom was born in Antioch about 347. He was considered to be an excellent speaker/preacher and was given the nickname Chrysostom which means “golden-mouthed” in Greek. Saint Chrysostom is also attributed with the following quote about prayer:

Prayer is a rich treasure, a wealth that is never exhausted, an undisturbed refuge, a cause of tranquility, the root of a multitude of blessings and their source.
