The Funeral Sermon and Prayer (Hungarian: Halotti beszéd és könyörgés) is an old handwritten Hungarian text dating to 1192-1195. It was found on the 154a. page of the Codex Pray.

The importance of the Funeral Sermon comes from that it is the oldest surviving Hungarian, and Finno-Ugric text (although the first records of Hungarian are in a charter dated to 997). The whole sermon has two parts: the sermon's text (26 lines and 227 words) and the prayer (6 lines and 47 words). If one does not count repeated words, there are 190 individual terms in the script. The work was written after a Latin version (whilst the Hungarian edition is a particular writing rather than a translation). Since 1813, the manuscript has been kept in Budapest, Hungary.
