Saint Basil asks God to show His mercy to human beings in all kinds of situations, with complete trust that He will do so. For catechumens Basil asks, "Grant them a light yoke." With human frailty in mind he calls on God to remember the people who might not be remembered in prayer by those serving at the altar "through ignorance, forgetfulness ...
Prayer 6, likewise by St. Basil We bless Thee, O Most High God and Lord of mercy, Who ever doest with us things both great and inscrutable, both glorious and awesome, of which there is no measure; who grantest to us sleep for rest from our infirmities, and relaxation from the labours of our much-toiling flesh.

Steer the ship of my life, good Lord, to your quiet harbour, where I can be safe from the storms of sin and conflict. Show me the course I should take. Renew in me the gift of discernment, so that I can always see the right direction in which I should go. And give me the strength and the courage to choose the right course, even when the sea is rough and the waves are high, knowing that through enduring hardship and danger, in your name, we shall find comfort and peace. Amen.
O Lord our God, we beseech you, to ask for the gift we need. Steer the ship of our life to yourself, the quiet harbour of all storm-stressed souls. Show us the course which we are to take. Renew in us the spirit of docility. Let your Spirit curb our fickleness; guide and strengthen us to perform what is for our own good, to keep your commandments and ever to rejoice in your glorious and vivifying presence. Yours is the glory and praise for all eternity. Amen.
O God, grant us a deeper sense of fellowship with all living things, our little brothers and sisters, to whom in common with us You have given this earth as home. We recall with regret that in the past we have acted high handedly and cruelly in exercising our domain over them thus, the voice of the earth which should have risen to you in song, has turned into a groan of travail. May we realize that all these creatures also live for themselves and for you, not for us alone. They too love the goodness of life, as we do and serve you better in their way than we do in ours. Amen.
We give You thanks, O Lord our God, for the Communion of Your holy, pure, deathless and heavenly mysteries, which you have given for the good, the hallowing, and the healing of our souls and bodies. Do Thou, O Sovereign of the world, cause this Communion in the Holy Body and blood of Christ to nourish us in unashamed faith, sincere charity, ripe wisdom, health of soul and body, separation from all ills, observance of Your Law, and justification before His awful Judgment Seat. O Christ our God, the Mystery of Your Providence has been accomplished according to our ability. We have been reminded of Your Death and we have seen a figure of Your Resurrection; we have been filled with Your Infinite Life, and we have tasted Your inexhaustible joy; and we pray to You to make us worthy of these things in the life to come, through the grace of Your Eternal Father and of Your holy, good, and life-giving Spirit, now and forever, eternally. Amen. (By St Basil of Caesarea) … St Basil of Caesarea,...

Another ancient attraction of Suzdal is St. Basil Monastery founded in the early 13th century. Its main temple is the single-headed Cathedral of St. Basil the Great. It was built in the 17th century.
