Please note: The Prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian is said with morning and evening prayers by all Orthodox Christians throughout Lent, except on Saturdays and Sundays.
O Lord and Master of my life, give me not a spirit of idleness, despondency, ambition or vain talking. (Prostration)
But rather a spirit of purity, humility, patience and love, bestow on me Thy servant. (Prostration)
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own faults and not to judge my brother, for blessed art Thou to the ages of ages. Amen. (Prostration)
O God, cleanse me, a sinner. (12 times, with a bow made for each)
Then the entire prayer:
O Lord and Master of my life . . . (with one prostration made at the end)
