I pray that you rid me of my desire to be honored, praised, being preferred to others, consulted and approved of.
Help me to not fear being humiliated, forgotten, being wrong or suspected.
Grant me the desire for others to be truly loved more than I, for others to be chosen and I set aside. For others to be praised and I be unnoticed. That others increase while I decrease.
Help me to start with scripture, to draw near to and live for you.
