PRAYER OF SAINT EPHRAIM THE SYRIAN

O Lord and Master of my life, Grant not unto me a spirit of
idleness, of discouragement, of lust for power, and of vain talk.

But bestow upon me, Your servant, the spirit of chastity, of
meekness, of patience, and of love.
Yes,, O Lord and King, grant that I may see my own faults,,
and not the faults of others
others, for blessed are You
unto ages of ages. Amen.
