From the Triodion

O Apostles of Christ, who shine your light on earth, treasuries of the wise knowledge of our God, filling the world with riches: by your holy prayers deliver, who sing your praises, from all temptation. Guide us through the season of the Fast, watchfully guarding our lives in peace. So shall our payers be acceptable to Christ as we celebrate His Passion, and with boldness we shall offer glory to our God.

From O Lord, to You I Call,
Vespers, Thursday, Second Week of Lent

R. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones, and glory all you upright of heart.

V. Blessed are those whose sins are forgiven.

Prokimenon, Tone Eight, First Reading, Vespers, Thursday, Second Week of Lent.

Keeping a spiritual Fast, O brethren, let us speak no lies with our tongue nor give our brothers and sisters cause for scandal. But through repentance, let us make the lamp of our soul burn brightly, and let us cry with tears to Christ: Forgive us our trespasses in Your love for mankind.

From the Aposticha, Vespers, Thursday, Second Week of Lent
