O Lord, who for our sake did fast forty days and forty nights; Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being submitted to the Spirit we may ever obey your godly motions in righteousness, and true holiness, to your honor and glory, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.1
