Prayer for Humility
“Father, let the Holy Spirit have full dominion over me, in my home, in my temper, in every word of my tongue, in every thought of my heart, in every feeling toward my fellow men; let the Holy Spirit have entire possession.”
(Written by Andrew Murray in his book “Absolute Surrender”).
Prayer for Deliverance
Deliver me, Jesus from the desire to be praised, honored, glorified, preferred, wanted, consulted, or approved. Deliver me, Jesus, from the fear of being humiliated, criticized, forgotten, ridiculed, maltreated, rejected, and from the fear of what others (will) think about me. O Jesus, give me the grace to desire: that others would be loved and esteemed and encouraged and lifted up ahead of me, that in the eyes of the world they would increase while I decrease, and praised while I pass by unnoticed; that others would be preferred in all situations; that others would become more important than myself — in order that I would be as holy a servant as You are and want me to be.
Written by Charles de Foucauld
Prayer for Love
Lord, thank you for the amazing gifts of your Spirit, your love, and your grace. Thank you for calling us to share these great gifts and the good news of the gospel with the world. Help us to love our neighbors as purely as you do. Shape each of us in your holy image. Prepare our hearts to do your will, to be your hands and feet here on earth. Let every thought, every word and every action find its foundation in your love, to your glory. Help us have eyes to see the needs around us and to respond to those needs with the joy and hope that only comes from you.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
