Prayer for Humility
(inspired by Mark 10:35-45)
Whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant. (Mark 10:43)
God with us,
When we privilege our own agendas,
hurt others in the effort to impose our will,
or chain ourselves to our fears,
tumble us off the throne of our pride,
and release us into finding our worth in your love.
Lord have mercy on us
Lord Jesus Christ,
you know us, you love us, you free us,
then call us to follow you
and we bless you.
Your mercy meets us in our confusion;
may your spirit meet us in our everyday living.
