X (5)

O Lord and Master of my life, give me
not a spirit of sloth, of despondency, of lust or
of vain talking; but bestow on me thy
servant a spirit of chastity, of humility,
of patience and love. You, O Lord and
King, grant to me to see my own errors
& not to judge my brother, for blessed
art thou unto ages of ages.ˇ

(Popular in C19Russia)
St. Ephrem

"All the essence of Xtianity is contained in this prayer."
