Welcome to the prayer during the day at Suomenlinna church.


Let’s pray.

O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us.

You, Christ, are the King of glory,

the eternal Son of the Father.

When you took our flesh to set us free

you humbly chose the Virgin’s womb.

You overcame the sting of death

and opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers.

You are seated at God’s right hand in glory.

(from the Deum Laudamus)



From the psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; therefore can I lack nothing.

He makes me lie down in green pastures

and leads me beside still waters.

He shall refreshes my soul

and guide me in the paths of righteousness

for his name’s sake.

Though I walk through the valley of the shadows of death,

I will fear no evil; for you are with me;

your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You spread a table before me

in the presence of those who trouble me;

you have anointed my head with oil

and my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and loving mercy shall follow me

all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.



Let us by prayer and intercession with thanksgiving make our request to God.

We pray for the renewal of the Church in faith, love and service.

We pray for Irja our bishop and for the life of this Cathedral.

We give thanks for the gift of your word,

the grace of the sacraments

and the fellowship of your people.

Let us commend ourselves, and all for whom we pray,

to mercy and protection of God.

O Lord our God,

grant us grace to desire you with our whole heart;

that so desiring, we may seek and find you;

and so finding, may love you;

and so loving, may hate those sins from which

you have delivered us;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.


(Anselm, 1109)


Let’s pray Lord’s prayer.

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come;

thy will be done;

in earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation;

but deliver us from evil.

 For thine is the kingdom,

 the power and the glory,

 for ever and ever.



Let’s sing in four different languages: finnish, latin, swedish and english.

Te kaikki kansat tulkaa nyt Herraa kiittämään.

Te kaikki kansat tulkaa nyt Herraa kiittämään.

Laudate omnes gentes, laudate Dominum.

Laudate omnes gentes, laudate Dominum.

Sjung lovsång, alla länder, och prisa Herrens namn.

Sjung lovsång, alla länder, och prisa Herrens namn.

Sing praises all you peoples, sing praises to the Lord.

Sing praises all you peoples, sing praises to the Lord.



Take a Lord’s blessing

The Lord bless you and watch over you,

the Lord make his face shine on upon you

and be gracious to you,

the Lord look kindly on you

and give you peace;

and the blessing of God almighty,

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

be among you and remain with you always.



Thank you for joining prayer during the day, and enjoy your day in Suomenlinna.
