Ash Wednesday: "Repent and believe in Gospel"
O Lord and Master of my life, Grant not unto me a spirit of idleness, of discouragement, of lust for power, and of vain speaking. [Prostration]
But bestow upon me, Thy servant, the spirit of chastity, of meekness, of patience, and of love. [Prostration]
Yea, O Lord and King, grant that I may perceive my own transgressions, and judge not my brother, for blessed art Thou unto ages of ages. Amen. [Prostration]
May we bear the wounds of your Son in our bodies, for through his body he gave us life.
