PRAYER OF St. EPHREM
O Lord and Master of my life,
Keep from me the spirit of indifference and discouragement,
Lust of power, and idle chatter.
Instead, grant to me Your servant,
The spirit of wholeness of being, humble mindedness, patience and love.
O Lord and King,
Grant me the grace to be aware of my sins and not to judge my neighbour;
For You are blessed, now and forever and ever. Amen.
