Here’s a prayer for Great Lent from St. Gregory the Dialogist:
O Almighty Lord, who hast made all created things in wisdom, and by Thine inexpressible providence and great goodness hast brought us to these all-holy days, for the purification of body and soul, for the controlling of carnal passions, and for the hope of the Resurrection…Enable us also, O Good One, to fight the good fight; to accomplish the course of the Fast; to preserve inviolate the Faith…to be accounted victors over sin; and uncondemned to attain unto and adore Thy Holy Resurrection. For blessed and glorified is Thine all-honorable and majestic Name: of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
"Very wonderful presentation of the rich fullness of Orthodoxy! Keep up the blessed work in gently and lovingly offering Orthodoxy to our world. God bless!"
