Dear Lord, help me to humble myself (Matthew 23:12, ESV). May I not seek my own glory, but Yours (John 8:50, ESV). Help me to put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and to make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires (Romans 13:14, ESV). May I be strong and bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please myself. Help me to please others for their good, to build them up. For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me” (Romans 15:1–3, ESV).
Father, I want to be content to suffer wrong and to be defrauded (1 Corinthians 6:7, ESV), rather than to complain and to fight (Philippians 2:14-15). Please help me to be a servant to all, that I might win more of them (1 Corinthians 9:19, ESV). For I have died, and my life is hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3, ESV).
Help me to put on as Your chosen one, holy and beloved, a compassionate heart, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, may I bear with others and, if someone has a complaint against me, forgiving them; as you have forgiven me, so I will also forgive. And above all these may I put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony (Colossians 3:12–14, ESV). May I deny myself and take up my cross and follow Jesus everyday of my life (Matthew 16:24, ESV).
