A Prayer For Humility and Consideration

“Father, in our human nature we want the best seat, the first choice, the biggest piece, to be first in line, and on and on it goes.  The desire to serve self before serving others is an ongoing battle.  Thank you for those who walk in humility, giving preference to others, rather than choosing to please themselves first.  They serve as human examples of the attitude Jesus exemplified when He, being in Your very nature did not consider equality with You something to hold onto.  Instead Jesus took on the very nature of a servant and became God in the flesh.  In His human role He showed us the greatest example of humility as He related to people from day to day and ultimately when He laid down His life for us. We’re thankful for Jesus and His greatest act of humility.  It is in His name that we pray. Amen.”
