First Week of the Great Fast

Expulsion from ParadiseFebruary 27 - March 5, 2017 | First Week of the Great Fast

Lenten Prayer of Saint Ephrem

O Lord and Master of my life, drive away from me the spirit of despondency, carelessness, love of power, and idle chatter.
Rather grant to me, Your servant, the spirit of wholeness of being, humility, patience, and love.
Yes, O Lord and King, grant that I may see my own faults and not condemn my brother; for You are blessed to the ages of ages. Amen.
