The Lenten Prayer of St. Ephraim

O Lord and Master of my life! Give me not the spirit of sloth, despair, 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 transgressions and not to judge my brother, for blessed art Thou, unto ages of ages.
