Serapion (d. 360) was Bishop of Thmuis
We ask for your help, Father of Christ, Lord of all that is, Creator of all the created, Maker of all that is made; we stretch out clean hands to You and lay bare our minds before You.
Have mercy [on Weobley], we pray; spare us [especially during this present epidemic], be kind to us, improve us; fill us with virtue, faith, and knowledge.
Look at us, Lord; we bring our weaknesses for you to see. Be kind and merciful to all of us; have pity on this people of Yours and show them your favour, make them equitable, temperate and pure.
Send the Holy Spirit into our minds, I beg you, and grant that we may learn to understand the holy scriptures He inspired. May we interpret them correctly and fittingly, for the benefit of all. through Your only Son, Jesus Christ.
Through Him may glory and power be Yours, now and age after age. Amen.
