The Orthodox Church has a prayer for just about everything. There are prayers for blessing just about any object (Vehicles, Bee-hives, Icons, Animals, Houses, and more), services of need (Molieben) for almost any situation (Bad Weather, Sleep Issues, Trouble Studying, Soldiers going overseas, etc.), as well as services of thanksgiving (for healing, good health, new job, etc.), and services honoring patron saints, special feasts, or commemorating events (anniversaries, birthdays, etc.).
