A Prayer of Saint Ephrem, the Harp of the Holy Spirit


O Lord and Master of my life,
take from me the spirit of sloth, despondency,
lust of power, and idle talk;

But grant rather to thy servant
the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love.

Yea, O Lord and King,
grant me to see my own transgressions,
and not to judge my brother;
for blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages.
