With the blessing of His Eminence, the Most Reverend Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, we are providing you with this prayer to print out, post somewhere in your home, and read daily. Normally, this is read by the priest as part of the “Molieben Sung in Time of Devastating Epidemic and Deathbearing Pestilence”. Metropolitan Hilarion has blessed all the laity to read this prayer while we are in the worldwide pandemic of Covid-19.  

You may find the entire service in The Great Book of Needs, Vol. IV, published by St. Tikhon’s Seminary Press, South Canaan, Pennsylvania, 1999. If your Church or priest do not have this 4- volume set, it is a wonderful gift item. There is also a smaller, pocket edition that is very much appreciated as a gift as they can take it to homes, hospitals, etc.
