PRAYER OF ST. EPHREM
O Lord and Master of my life,
leave me not with the spirit of laziness,
of despair, of domination, or idle words.
Rather, give me, your servant, the spirit of integrity,
of humility, of patience, and of love.
Thus, Lord, grant me the wisdom to see my own faults,
and not condemn my brother;
for You are blessed, now and forever. Amen.
Our Father, who are in heaven,
hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day
our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
