Prayer of Saint Ephriam

To be said every day during lent:

O 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, 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.
