May God, Who sees all things, and Who is the Ruler of all spirits and the Lord of all flesh – Who chose our Lord Jesus Christ and us through Him to be a chosen people – grant to everyone, who calls upon His glorious and holy name, faith, peace, patience, forbearance, self-control, purity, and self-restraint, to the pleasure of His name, through our High Priest and Protector, Jesus the Christ, through Whom be to God glory, and majesty, and power, and honor, both now and forevermore. Amen.
