St Ephrem the Syrian

The Prayer of St. Ephrem

O Lord and Master of my life, keep from me the spirit of indifference and despair, lust of power, and idle chatter. (Prostration)

Instead, bestow on me, your servant, the spirit of wholeness of being, humility, patience, and love. (Prostration)

Yes, O Lord and King, grant me the grace to be aware of my sins and not judge my brothers and sisters; for You are blessed, for ever and ever.
Amen. (Prostration)

† God, be merciful to me a sinner!
† God, cleanse me of my sins and have mercy on me!
† I have sinned without number, forgive me, O Lord! (4 times)

O Lord and Master of my life! Drive from me the spirit of indifference and discouragement, lust for power, and idle chatter. Instead, grant to me, Your servant, the spirit of integrity, humility, patience, and love. Yes, O Lord and King! Let me see my own sins and not to judge my brothers and sisters; for You are blessed, for ever and ever. Amen. (Prostration)
