Prayer for Aid in Fasting

Hanging as a vine upon the Wood,

O Christ our Saviour,

Thou hast made the ends of the earth

to drink from the wine of incorruption.

Therefore do I cry aloud:

I am darkened always by the hateful drunkenness of sin;

Give me to drink from the sweet wine of true compunction,

and grant me now the strength, O Saviour,

to fast from sensual pleasures,

for Thou art good and lovest mankind.

St. Joseph Studite, Lenten Triodion
