A Prayer for Humility

Blessed Jesus I come to you with too much pride, too much self-importance; and I ask you to remove from me all that stands between you and me.  Teach me that it is NOT all about me, rather it is about service; service to you and to all those around me.   Show me that it is not my will but Your will that is to be done.  Take away from me the need for attention, humble me and show me how to attend to others.  You once asked Isaiah “who shall I send” and Isaiah quickly and eagerly responded “Here I am Lord, send me”.  I ask, no, I beg of you to remove from me all vanity and self-love and teach me humility and most importantly, service to you and all your children.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
