The prayer "My hope is the Father, my refuge is the Son, my shelter is the Holy Spirit, O Holy Trinity, Glory to You" was authored by Ioannikios the Great in the 8th or 9th century. They say he used when reciting the Psalms. Today it is still used by Byzantine Christians. When singing Psalms (which is a major thing for us), between every stasis (one-third) of a Kathisma (division of the book of Psalms), we use it, as well as on other occasions, both formally and informally. Some might compare it to the Three Jewels of Theravada Buddhism (I take refuge in the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, etc.) Though it is outwardly very similar I suppose, our prayer developed independently of the latter. It is quite different internally. While the Three Jewels focus mainly on refuge in a system or way of life, and its founder (Siddhartha Gautama is considered only human by Theravadas), the Trinitatian prayer puts complete dependence on a Divine Personal Being who intimately knows us and cares for us. The aim and theology is entirely different.
