Prayer of St. Ephraim, to be prayed during Lent.

"O Lord and Master of my life
do not give me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power, or idle talk.

But give rather a spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to your servant.

Yes Lord and King, grant me to see my own transgressions
and not to judge my brother.

For blessed art Thou unto ages of ages, amen."

It's a few days before Lent, but still...I am going to be fasting from blogging during lent, so I'll see you all on the flip side, after Holy Pascha!

Blessings and peace to you all.

I kind of like this idea - fasting from blogging. May God bless you!

By the way, I started wearing my head covering to church again, and I do believe that somehow - mystically - I am more calm with my disobedient little ones during the service.
