Second Doxology for the Holy Great Lent
Fasting and prayer, are the salvation for our souls, purity and righteousness, they are what please God.
+ Fasting has raised Moses, up to the mountain, until he received the Law for us, from the Lord our God.
Fasting has raised Elijah, up to heaven, and has saved Daniel, from the den of lions.
+ Our Lord Jesus Christ, has fasted for us, forty days and forty nights, to save us from our sins.
And we too should also fast, with purity and righteousness, and let us also pray, proclaiming and saying.
+ “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Your name, may Your kingdom come, for Yours is the glory forever Amen.”
