Of the Graces of Your Great Mercy

Holy Spirit, 'Send the dew of Your sweetness, and grant that, with my senses under control, my soul and my spirit may enjoy the fullness of the graces of Your great mercy. Cultivate the impressionable ground of my hardened heart of flesh so that it may be able to receive Your spiritual seed and make it bear fruit. We confess that only through Your great wisdom do the gifts blossom and grow in us.' 

St. Gregory of Narek
