Summary/Abstract: The article deals with a prayer before going to sleep copied among the numerous prayers for sick persons in the Glagolitic Slavic Euchology of Sinai. The Greek parallel to this text is identified for the first time; besides, the unusual choice of the Slavonic redactor to put it within the group of the prayers for the sick is analysed. The reason for this collocation is searched in the dialectics between liturgical worship and private prayer characteristic of the Studite movement of the eleventh century and in the interaction between cathedral and monastic books caused by it on „editorial“ level.
