Father, keep me from pride and arrogance. In spite of my many failures, pride continues to be a thorn in my flesh. Please Father, help me understand that I am the chief of sinners so that I will not to look down on anyone else. I do not do great things; I cannot solve great mysteries or do miracles but I commit myself to small things like helping my neighbor, visiting the sick and sharing your word. Please give me a quiet and gentle spirit like a child in the arms of its loving mother. I want to know the peace of a baby in its mother’s arms. People of America, put your hope in Jesus. Believe in Him now, believe in Him always. Jesus is our only hope.
[Based on Psalm 131]
