The Prayer of St. Ephraim - A Discussion and the Prayer
O Lord and Master of my life! Take from me the spirit of sloth, faint-heartedness, lust of power, and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love to Thy servant. Yea, O Lord and King! Grant me to see my own errors and not to judge my brother; For Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen (Lenten Prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian)
Have a blessed Lent, everyone!
(The chant "Open to Me the Doors of Repentance" is done in Zinamenny Chant by the Valaam Brotherhood Choir and can be found on their CD "Taste the Fountain of Immortality" which was released by Conciliar Press.)
