Lenten Prayer

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

But give rather a 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 are Thou unto ages of ages. Amen.  

St Ephraim the Syrian's Prayer.
