|O Lord and Master of my life!|
|A spirit of emptiness, gloom, domination and empty talk let me not have it.|
|A spirit of purity, humility, patience and love, grant it to me, Your servant.|
|Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own faults and not to judge my brother, for blessed are You unto the ages of ages. Amen.|
"A Prayer of st. Ephrem Sirin".
