Guide for Lent 2

Each day before and after 
you read the section
from the Bible, pray this 
traditional Lenten prayer
composed by St. Ephrem of Syria.

O Lord and master of my life,
keep me from the spirit of
indifference and discouragement,
need for power and idle chatter.

+
Instead, grant me, your servant, 
the spirit of wholeness of heart,
humble-mindedness, 
patience and love.

+
O Lord and King, grant me the grace
to be aware of my sins,
and not to judge 
my brothers and sisters;
for you are blessed, for ever and ever. 

Amen
