Prayer is an important part of the Lenten Journey. Ever since the Fourth Century, The Prayer of St. Ephrem The Syrian has been a Guide for people who want to follow in the way of the Divine Family.
O Lord and Master of my life
remove from me the spirit of sadness, despair, thirst for power and vain talk.
Instead, grant me, Your servant,
the spirit of prudence, humility, patience and love.
Indeed, O Lord and King,
grant that I see my own sins and not judge my brother or sister,
for You are blessed unto ages of ages. Amen.
— St. Ephrem, The Syrian — Fourth Century
