The Lenten Journey

Lent has begun for both Eastern and Western Christians. I found this video on Youtube that I thought was a beautiful prayer for the Lenten journey. May God bring us to greater depths of repentence and love during this season!

Lenten Prayer of St. Ephraim
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.
Yes, O Lord and King,
Grant me to see my own sins
and not to judge my brother.
For Thou art Blessed unto ages of ages.
Amen.
