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.

"How blessed I am to listen to your remarkable station, as I receive such blessing and teaching (often what as a Roman I already believe) from happy and contented priests and educated laypersons. Thank you!"
