The Prayer ‘Par Excellence’ of Great Lent: St. Ephraim’s Prayer

O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust for power and idle talk.

But grant unto me, Thy servant, a spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love.

Yea, O Lord and King, grant that I may see my own transgressions, and not to judge my brother, for blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen.
St. Ephraim the Syrian
