Prayers

Akathist Hymn

Paraklesis

Apolytikion: The truth of things hath revealed thee to thy flock as a rule of faith, an icon of meekness, and a teacher of temperance; for this cause, thou hast achieved the heights by humility, riches by poverty. O Father and Hierarch Nicholas, intercede with Christ God that our Souls be saved.

Kontakion: Saintly One, in Myra you proved yourself a Priest; for in fulfilling the Gospel of Christ, Venerable one, you laid down your life for your people and saved the innocent from death. For this you were Sanctified as one learned in Divine Grace.

Hymn: You reached the height of knowledge unflinchingly, and plumbed the depths of wisdom unspeakably, and through your teachings, you have enriched the whole world, O Father. Ever entreat Christ on behalf of us, O Hierarch Nicholas.
