TEMPT // LENT D::18

[ READING :: Galatians 6:1-10 ]

Meditations ::.

-- Prayers for you Lenten journey

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.

Also  -----------

Let us fast O faithful

from corrupting snares, from harmful passions,

So that we may acquire life from the divine cross

and return with the good thief to our initial home

-- From Great Lent; journey to Pascha by Alexander Schmemann

Let these are two Lenten prayers ground you and guide as you continue your journey.

? We can often see the ways others have given in to temptation...

...are we aware of our own temptations and failures ?
