The Prayer of Saint Ephrem the Syrian
Lord and Master of my life,
take from me the spirit of laziness, discouragement,
lust for power and idle talk.
Instead grant to me, Your servant,
the spirit of purity, humility, patience and love.
Lord and King, grant me the grace to be aware of my own sins
and refrain from judging others;
for You are blessed forever. Amen.
God, be merciful to me a sinner!
God, cleanse me of my sins and have mercy on me!
Lord, forgive me for I have sinned without number!
