  The Prayer of Saint Ephraim the Syrian*

O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust of power and idle talk. (prostration)


But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to thy servant. (prostration)

Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own sins and not to judge my brother, for thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen. (prostration)

+O God, cleanse me the sinner. (said twelve times, with bows)

O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust of power and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to thy servant. Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own sins and not to judge my brother, for thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen. (prostration)
