The Prayer of St. Ephrem the Syrian
O Lord and Master of my
life, give me not a spirit of sloth, vain curiosity, lust for
power, and idle talk.
But give to me Thy servant a spirit of soberness, humility, patience, and love.
O Lord and King, grant me to see my own faults and not to condemn my brother:
For blessed art Thou to the ages of ages. Amen
