The Prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian

O Lord and Master of my life,

a spirit of idleness, despondency, ambition,

and idle talking give me not.

But rather a spirit of chastity,

humble-mindedness, patience, and love

bestow upon me thy servant.

Yea, O Lord King,

grant me to see my own sins

and not condemn my brother;

for blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages.
