A Little More On Judgment

This morning I was invited to teach a congregation that a dear friend of mine serves. I shared a similar message to the one I gave on Saturday night.

At the end of the service at Live Oaks I  prayed the “Lenten Prayer of St. Ephrem the Syrian.” This is prayer that Wheatland has prayed and meditated upon. Here it is, yet again (this prayer has made its way into many posts), in its entirety:

“O Lord and Master of my life!

Take from me the spirit of sloth,
faint-heartedness, lust of power, and idle talk.

But give rather the spirit of chastity,
humility, patience, and love to Thy servant.

Yea, Lord and King! Grant me to see my own errors and not to judge my brother,
for Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen.”
