And Judge Not My Brother

st_ephraim_the_syrianO Lord and Master of my life,
Grant not unto me a spirit of idleness,
of discouragement,
of lust for power,
and of vain speaking.

But bestow upon me, Thy servant,
the spirit of chastity,
of meekness,
of patience,
and of love.

Yea, O Lord and King,
grant that I may perceive
my own transgressions,
and judge not my brother,
for blessed art Thou
unto ages of ages.
Amen.

-St. Ephrem the Syrian

  1. No way, this is yours… awesome! I’m a fan.

    You should come by for group tonight, we’re having a cake walk. I’m making my batter now…

  2. How funny that you found the site without my telling you.

    Unfortunately, we won’t make it for the cake walk. Save a cupcake for me.
