A Lenten Prayer by EB Pusey

God, give us grace, this Lent, so to lay to heart our ways, that we may weary of all which is not His, from Him, to Him: and may, through Him, the Living Way, by new love and obedience, attain to Him, Who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, is the End of our being, the Fulness of bliss of all creation, “the Eternal Infinite Truth, the origin, fountain, measure, end, and cause of all created truth,” the ever-blessed, beatific Life; to which He, of His mercy, bring us sinners, to Whom be all glory and thanksgiving and adoration and praise, for ever and ever. Amen.

This was posted by NovaScotiaScott several years ago.  (I miss his blog, he used to post many excellent prayers!)  I found the link to the post when reviewing some of our Lent archives from our old blog, and thought this deserved getting posted on our current site!
