The Prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian



 O Lord and Master of my life, a spirit of idleness, despondency,
ambition, and idle talking give me not. Prostration.



But rather a spirit of chastity, humble-mindedness, patience, and love
bestow upon me Thy servant. Prostration.  



Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my failings and not condemn my
brother; for blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen. Prostration.



Then twelve ?reverences (bows from the waist with the sign of the
Cross). With each one we say:

O God, cleanse me a sinner.  



And then the entire prayer: 

O Lord and Master of my life, a spirit of idleness, despondency,
ambition, and idle talking give me not. But rather a spirit of chastity,
humble-mindedness, patience, and love bestow upon me Thy servant. Yea, O
Lord and King, grant me to see my failings and not condemn my brother;
for blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen. Prostration.The Prayer
