Against Pride

Lord let me not think too highly of myself
Nothing and no one comes before You
Have mercy on this proud heart of mine
Grant me the grace
Never to raise myself above anyone
Only then can I be kind, considerate
And charitable to others
Kill the pride within me
Make me not “I-centered”
But “other-centered”
Rid me of my bloated self-esteem
Impress on me my nothingness
Without You.

Bible Inspiration: Proverbs 29:23
A man’s pride results in his humiliation, but he who humbles himself will achieve honors.
