Lord, free me from my need to exalt myself.

Where I am prone to seek things for myself,
help me to seek the best things for You and others…

Where I am prone to make enemies,
help me to make friends…

Where I am prone to mistrust,
help me to trust…

Where I am prone to hate,
help me to love…

Where I am prone to despise,
help me to respect…

Where I am prone to seek being served,
help me to serve…

Where I am prone to speak evil,
help me to speak words of life…

Where I am prone to be idle,
help me to choose action…

Where I am prone to discouragement,
help me to be encouraged and to give encouragement…

Where I am prone to a lust for power,
help me to yield power…

Where I am prone to feel entitled,
help me to relinquish my rights…

Where I am prone to speak boastfully,
help me to choose meekness…

Where I am prone to impatience,
help me to  choose patience…

Where I am prone to be demanding,
help me to choose love…

All for Your glory. Amen.

One thought on “Free Me from My Need to Exalt Myself”

  1. “Where I am prone to be idle,
    help me to choose action…”

    A great reminder in a time where more and more Christians are accepting the world’s view on gay marriage, infanticide, and anti-christian legislation.

    Let’s stand up for biblical truth!
