Resources for Lent – Prayer of Ephram the Syrian

February 21, 2007 — Leave a comment

This is an amazing prayer used through out Lent, especially by the Eastern church.  In our Ash Wednesday services, I read from a commentary on this prayer.  I urge you to read it and reflect prayerfully on it. I’d suggest beginning your daily time with God in this prayer. 

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.  Yea, O Lord and King!  Grant me to see my own errors and not to judge my brother;  for Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen
