Praying at the moleben can be both the Lord and the saints or the virgin Mary. It is necessary to specify who exactly ordered prayer to the choir sing certain hymns, and the priest said a prayer solos.
Before ordering the service, it is useful to know at what time divine service is performed. In small parishes where divine service is sent on Saturday, Sundays and great feasts) the prayers often passed in the morning, after the Liturgy. In large cathedrals the prayer following may be performed every day, in addition to several of the statutory days (such as Holy week or mortuary Saturday).

Just as people are ordering commemoration at the divine Liturgy or memorial service is performed and the entry of names on the prayer service. It is worth remembering that prayers can be enjoyed about living baptized people. Prayers for the repose of the Orthodox Church does not exist (for this Statute involves a service).
If a person orders a prayer to any Saint, it is worth member of the Church taking notes to say precisely what the ascetic. The same applies to the practice of prayer appeals to the Lord or the Theotokos. The names of the prayers are written in the genitive case.
