Christian Living Prayer

Prayer before Using the Internet

“…and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the Evil One”

“Light from light, Only -begotten Son of the Father of lights, who dwellest in light unapproachable, the beauty of whose countenance is beyond description and whose luminous thoughts are beyond the grasp of any created mind; O Creator of all form and beauty, which are intended for holiness and contemplation of thee: do thou now guide me who would use the internet, that by so doing I would glorify thee, and walk in the light thou givest me, at all times thinking on whatever is true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and good, to the sole glory of thy most holy Name, Jesus: through the prayers of the Virgin Mary, thy Mother; of our fathers among the saints Isidore of Seville and Theophan the Recluse; of the Venerable Eugenius of Aitolia, Job of Pochaev, and Nicodemus the Hagiorite; and all the saints. Amen.”
