A Prayer For the Imperial Family
« on: July 16, 2005, 01:02:38 PM »
I found this on livadia.org and I thought it was fitting for the day. (As I post, there's about half an hour left until my moment of silence- and I'm sure many of you will be joining me.) This was written by Olga and found in a prayer book of hers at the Ipatiev House.

Send us the patience, Father, to support us in this year of dark days and tempests, these persecutions of the people and these tortures of our executioners.
Give us the strength, O just God, to pardon the wickedness of our neighbors, and to carry the heavy bloody cross with your humility.
And in these riotious days, when our enemies strip us, help us, Saviour God, to suffer the shame and the insults.
Master of the world, bless us with your prayer and give the peace to our soul appeased at this terrible hour and unbearable.
And at the gates of the tomb, make us born again with the lips of your slaves the superhuman force of humble prayer for our enemies.

I just read this - I had seen this many times but I just reread it slowly and thinking about the position they were in. Thank you for posting it, Margarita.

Right...We can't forget Ella and the brave people who died with her in Alapaevsk. I keep especially her and Sister Varvara in my prayers, but also the young sweet poet, Volodia Paley.

God Bless them All.

Actually I haven't noticed any "bad" or "worse" English here. My parents and grandma are always on my case for "terrible" grammar too, so I would know!
