St. Nicholas Day

Tomorrow, the 6th of December, is the Feast of St. Nicholas. Here are some prayers:

hear our prayers for mercy,
and by the help of Saint Nicholas
keep us safe from all danger,
and guide us on the way of salvation.

Grant this through our Lord Jeus Christ,
your Son, who lives and reigns with you
for ever and ever.

S. Nicholas, pray for us.

St. Nicholas Parish, Plumstead, UK

Almighty God,
who in your love gave to your servant Nicholas of Myra
a perpetual name for deeds of kindness on land and sea:
Grant, we pray,
that your Church may never cease to
work for the happiness of children,
the safety of sailors,
the relief of the poor,
and the help of those tossed by tempests of doubt or grief;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
