Lenten Prayer


O great Lord and God! You have led us from corruption to imperishable life through the life-giving death of Your Christ. So, now, deliver our senses from the mortal tyranny of our passions and place them under the safe and able guidance of our inner reason. Let not our eyes wander in search of evil sights, nor our ears indulge in listening to idle talk. Cleanse our tongues of unbefitting speech, O Lord, and purify our lips that they may praise You. Keep our hands from evil deeds and make them ever ready to do only the things that please You. Do this, Lord, by strengthening our understanding, and, indeed, our entire being, by your grace.

For You deserve all glory, honor, and worship, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and forever and to the ages of ages.  Amen.

From the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts
