Lenten Prayer

The Lenten Prayer of St Ephrem the Syrian

O Lord and Master of my life,
take from me the spirit of sloth,
despair, lust of power and idle talk;
grant 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.
Amen.
