Morning Prayer: Friday after Ash Wednesday

  1. Support us, O Lord, with your gracious favor through
    the fast we have begun; 

    that as we observe it by bodily self-denial, 
    so we may fulfill it with inner sincerity of heart; 
    through Jesus Christ our Lord, 
    who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
    one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
