Sixth Hour Prayers
O You Who on the sixth day and hour nailed to the cross the sin which rebellious Adam committed in Paradise, tear asunder also the bond of our iniquities, O Christ our God, and save us. God, Lord of hosts and Maker of all creation, who in Your great compassion and mercy sent down Your Only-Begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
