O Lord and Master of my life,
give me not the spirit of sloth,
meddling, lust for power and idle talk.
But grant unto me,
a spirit of chastity (integrity),
humility, patience and love.
Yea, O Lord and King,
grant me to see mine own faults
and not to judge my brother.
For blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages.
St. Ephrem The Syrian
