O Lord Jesus Christ, Saint Ephrem was gifted as a poet, and he used this talent to teach religious truths, earning the nickname “Harp of the Holy Spirit.” I ask him to pray for the proper use of my talents, and I dedicate them to Your kingdom, to be used according to Your will. Keep me from being held back by feelings of inadequacy or false humility, and teach me to see my talents as You see them, regardless of how insignificant I think they might be. Help me to overcome jealousy toward other people’s talents and to grow in thanksgiving for the gifts You have given me. Saint Ephrem, pray for me. Amen.
