Prayer of St. Ephrem on the back of the Holy Card:
O Lord and Master of my from me the spirit of laziness, meddling, ambition and vain talk.
But give me a spirit of prudence, humility, patience and love.
Yes Lord and King grant me to see my own sins and faults and not judge my brother.
For you are Blessed Forever and Ever. Amen
