Orthodox Prayer of a Single or Unmarried Person

O Blessed Lord, who hast set up for us an example of ideal purity, strengthen me, I beseech Thee, when temptation besets me, and when strong passions seem to overwhelm me, that I may remain constant in virtue and innocent in thought, word and deed, doing such things only as are well-pleasing unto Thee.

Grant me growth in wisdom and understanding, that I may serve Thee in holiness all the days of my life: Through the intercessions of Thine all-immaculate Mother and of all Thy Saints, especially my Patron Saint, (name). Amen.
