Prayer for the Beginning of Lent

O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of slothfulness, discouragement, lust of power, and vain talk.

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

Yea, O Lord and king, grant me to see my own errors and not to judge my brother; For thou art blessed always. Now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen

--- St. Ephraim the Syrian

(One studied this in Sunday school this week)
