I tell you, my friends, don't be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.                But I will warn you whom you should fear. Fear him, who after he has killed, has power to cast into Gehenna. Yes, I tell you, fear him.                Aren't five sparrows sold for two assaria coins? Not one of them is forgotten by God.                But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don't be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.                I tell you, everyone who confesses me before men, him will the Son of Man also confess before the angels of God;                but he who denies me in the presence of men will be denied in the presence of the angels of God.

Prayer of Saint Symeon

Now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, O Lord, according to Thy word. For my eyes have seen Thy salvation, which Thou hast prepared in the sight of all peoples, the light of revelation for the Gentiles, and the glory of Thy people Israel.

Virgin Mother of God, rejoice! Mary  full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, For thou hast borne the Saviour of our souls. (Bow)

In Lent, also these Troparia:

Glory: O Baptizer of Christ, remember us all, that we may be delivered from our sins, for to thee grace has been given to intercede for us. (Bow)

Now and ever: Holy Apostles and all Saints, pray for us, that we may be delivered from dangers, sorrows and afflictions; for we have obtained you as fervent intercessors with the Saviour. (Bow)

Under thy tender compassion we run, O Mother of God. Reject not our prayer in our trouble, but deliver us from harm, O only pure, only blessed one. (Twice).
