The Prayer of St. Ephram

O Lord and Master of my life,
take from me the spirit of sloth, despondency, lust for power and idle talk.

But grant unto me, Thy servant,
a spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love.

Yea, O Lord and King,
grant me to see mine own faults
and not to judge my brothers and sisters.
For blessed art Thou unto ages of ages.

O God, cleanse Thou me a sinner (repeat 12 times, with as many bows, and then again the whole prayer from the beginning throughout, and after that one great prostration)
