A PRAYER FOR LENT
O gracious Master,
infuse in our hearts the spotless light of Your Divine Wisdom and open the eyes of our mind that we may understand the teachings of Your Gospel.
Instill in us also the fear of Your blessed commandments,
so that having curbed all carnal desires,
we may lead a spiritual life,
both thinking and doing everything to please You.
For You, O Christ, our God,
are the enlightenment of our souls and bodies;
and to You we render glory,
together with Your eternal Father,
and with Your all holy, life-creating Spirit,
now and ever, and forever.
