A '''molieben''' (also called a '''moleben''', '''service of intercession''', or '''service of supplication''') is a [[supplication]] [[prayer]] service in honor of either our Lord [[Jesus Christ]], the [[Theotokos|Mother of God]], or a particular [[saint]] or [[martyr]]. It is a Slavic service, but closely related to the [[Paraklesis]] service. A molieben is usually served by an ordained [[priest]], but a laymen can also do a molieben, although in [http://www.saintjonah.org/services/moleben.htm a modified form].
It is the custom to celebrate a molieben service only in honor of a [[Glorification|glorified]] saint.
