Ash Wednesday – Prayer

Concede nobis, Domine, praesidia militiae christiannae sanctis inchoare jejuniis; ut contra spiritales nequitias pugnaturi, contientiae muniamur auxillis. Per Christum Dominim nostrum. Amen.

Grant us, O Lord, to begin our Christian warfare with holy fasts; that we are about to do battle with the spirits of evil we may be defended by the aid of self-denial. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
