The Lenten Prayer of St. Ephraim

+ O Lord and Master of my Life, take away from me the will to be lazy and to be sad, the desire to get ahead of other people, and to boast and brag.

+ Give me instead a pure and humble spirit, the will to be patient with others and to love them.

+ Grant O Lord, that I may see my own mistakes, and keep me from judging

 the things other people do. For you are blessed, now and forever, and to ages of ages. Amen.
