O Lord and Master of my life,
do not give me the spirit of sloth,
despair, lust of power and idle talk;
but give rather the spirit of chastity,
humility, patience and love to your servant.
Yes, O Lord and King,
grant that I may see my own transgressions
and not judge my brother;
for blessed are You unto ages of ages.
— St. Ephraem of Syria (via Dr. Pritchard)
