O Lord and Master of my life,
take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power and idle talk.
Give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, parience and love to Thy servant.
Yes, 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
