The holy prophet, Samuel.

For Samuel
Troparion, Tone II
Today, we honor your prophet, Samuel, O Lord: * By his prayers, save our souls.

Kondakion, Tone VIII
At your conception you were given to the Lord as a precious gift, O holy Samuel, * and you served him like an angel throughout your life. * In his plan of salvation he appointed you to speak for him and to foretell the future, * and because of this we hail you as a remarkable priest and prophet of the Lord.

Blessed is the kingdom of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit both now and forever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
