The MGOCSM of North America, the youth ministry of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, makes the beautiful prayers of the West Syriac Tradition available to our faithful in North America and worldwide. It is our hope, these prayers which are made available, will instill the discipline of prayer in the lives of all our faithful, to make them strong, witnessing Orthodox Christians. The liturgical prayers for all liturgical offices from Monday to Saturday are included in this app. The prayers of Sunday are not included, as it is the practice for Orthodox Christians to pray the liturgical hours of Sunday with the worshipping community.
May the power of the sacred prayers of the Holy Church, help us in our journey to the Kingdom of God.
“Sh’himo” is the Syriac word for “common” or “ordinary.” It simply refers to the prayers that are done on ordinary days (outside of the three day fast of Nineveh and the Great Fast) when there is not an important feast of the Church being celebrated. The Sh’himo prayers do not include Sunday, as every Sunday is a festal day on which we celebrate the Resurrection (Qyomtho) of our Lord.
