Welcome to Our Parish!
Prayer of St. Ephraim:
O Lord and Master of my Life!
Take from me the spirit of laziness, despair, lust

But give to me Thy servant, the spirit of purity,
humility, patience, and love.
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own

(this prayer is said mainly during the Great Fast; but its
content is relevant for the whole year. It may be good to add
it to our daily prayers all year)
