Start of Great Lent...

Prostration: when one falls to your knees and humbly bows one's head to the ground. ♥ My girls love saying this together every morning and night during Great Lent:

"O Lord and Master of my life, a spirit of idleness, despondency, ambition, and idle talking give me not.
But rather a spirit of chastity, humble-mindedness, patience, and love bestow upon me Thy servant.
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my failings and not condemn my brother; for blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen."

Yes, beautifully written because it is the inspired and inerrant word of God. :)
