Lenten Prayer of St. Ephraim

The Great Lenten Prayer of St Ephraim

O Lord and Master of my life, cast from me the spirit of sloth, despondency, lust for power and idle talk. (Prostration)

But grant unto me, Thy servant, a spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love. (Prostration)

Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own faults and not to judge my brothers and sisters. For Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen.(Prostration)

O God, cleanse Thou me a sinner (12 times, with as many bows, and then again the whole prayer from the beginning throughout, and after that one great prostration)
