Prayers of Invocation on Requests

Prayers of invocation on Requests

Be present, O Lord, to our requests; and as you give us a desire to pray, grant us, O most Loving God, your aid and comfort in our prayers; and may the souls which thirst for your promises be filled from your abundance; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Gelasian Sacramentary

Almighty God, who has given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common requests to you; and does promise that where two or three are gathered together in your name you will grant their requests; fulfill now, O Lord, the desires and petitions of your servants, as may be most expedient for them; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the world to come life everlasting. Amen. 

John Chrysostom
