The Prayer of St. Ephraim

Orthodox people say this prayer twice a day during Lent. I've always loved it.

The Prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian

O Lord and Master of my life, a spirit of idleness, despondency and ambition grant me not,
But rather a spirit of purity, humility, patience and love bestow upon me thy servant.
Grant O Lord King that I may see my own faults and not condemn others for blessed art Thou unto the ages, Amen.
