ST EPHRAIM THE SYRIAN
(PRAYER OF REPENTENCE)
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 are blessed unto ages of ages. Amen.
