O Lord and Master of my life,
take from me the spirit of sloth, despondency,
lust of power, and idle talk;

But grant rather
the spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love
to thy servant.

Yea, O Lord and King,
grant to me to see my own transgressions,
and not to judge my brother;
for blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages.

– Syriac Christian Prayer of St. Ephrem, 353
