A Prayer for Deceased Parents
'O God, who hast commanded us to honour our father and
our mother; in Thy mercy have pity on the souls of my father
and mother, and forgive them their trespasses; and make me

Christ our Lord. Amen. '
Prayer for All the Deceased
'By Your resurrection from the dead, O Christ, death no
longer hath power over those who die in holiness. So, we beseech
You, give rest to Your servants in Your sanctuary and in Abraham's
bosom. Grant it to those, who from Adam until now have adored
You with purity, to our fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters,
to our kinsmen and friends, to all those who have lived by
faith and passed on their road to You, by a thousand ways,
and in all conditions, and make them worthy of the heavenly
'Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord; Lord
hear my voice. Let Thy ears be attentive to the voice of my
supplication. If Thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities, Lord,
who shall survive it? For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness,
and by reason of Thy law, I have waited for Thee, O Lord.
My soul has relied on His word, my soul hath hoped in the
Lord. From the morning watch even until night, let Israel
hope in the Lord. Because with the Lord there is mercy; and
with Him plentiful redemption. And He shall redeem Israel
from all his iniquities. '
