A prayer Elder Joseph the Hesychast would recite before beginning to pray

Lord Jesus Christ, sweetest Father, God and
Lord of mercy, and Creator of the entire universe:
Look upon my humility and forgive all my sins
which I have committed all the years of my life up
to this very day and hour. Send forth Thine All-
Holy Spirit, the Comforter, so that He may teach,
illuminate, and safeguard me so that I no longer
sin, so that with a pure soul and heart I may adore,
worship, glorify, thank, and love Thee with all my
soul and heart, my sweetest Savior, Benefactor, and
God, Who is worthy of all love and worship. Yes,
good eternal Father, co-eternal Son, and All-Holy
Spirit, count me worthy of enlightenment and
divine spiritual knowledge, so that by beholding
Thy sweet grace I may bear the burden of this vigil
tonight, and render unto Thee my prayers and
thanksgiving, through the intercessions of the
Most Holy Theotokos and all the Saints. Amen.
