A prayer for humility

Running The Race

Many of you may not know that I have not been abundantly blessed with a spirit of humilty.

I was thinking about this earlier when I ran across the following prayer.

It is my hope that someone finds this as timely and relevent to their needs as I do.


Father, give me a spirit of humility that realizes its ignorance, admits its mistakes, recognizes its needs, welcomes advice, and accepts rebukes.

Help me always to praise rather than criticize, to encourage rather than to disparage, to build rather than to destroy, and to think of people at their best rather than at their worst.

I ask this through Christ our Lord.

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.”
