Oh Lord and Master of my life -
Take from me the spirit of sloth, faint-heartedness, 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 errors, and not to judge my brother; For Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen.
- St. Ephraim the Syrian
