St. John ClimacusFifth Week of the Great Fast

O Lord and Master of my life, drive away from me the spirit of despondency, carelessness, love of power, and idle chatter.

Rather grant to me, Your servant, the spirit of wholeness of being, humility, patience, and love.

Yes, O Lord and King, grant that I may see my own faults and not condemn my brother; for You are blessed to the ages of ages. Amen.

The icon is a detail of an icon of St. John Climacus
