The Prayer of Saint Ephraim the Syrian

Prayer of St. Ephraim

O Lord and Master of my life,Take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power and idle talk.

But give rather the spirit of chastity, meekness of mind, patience and love to Thy servant.

Yea O Lord and King, grant me to see my own transgressions and not to judge my brother, for blessed art thou unto ages of ages.  Amen.

About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
