Psalm 19: 8, 9, 10, 11
World English Bible (WEB)
Third Sunday of Lent -- March 8, 2015
8 Yahweh’s precepts are right, rejoicing the heart.
Yahweh’s commandment is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of Yahweh is clean, enduring forever.
Yahweh’s ordinances are true, and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yes, than much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey and the extract of the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is your servant warned.
In keeping them there is great reward.
Prayer of St. Ephraem of Syria - 4th Century
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,
for You are blessed unto ages of ages.
