Prayer for humility

Humble Servant,
Lord of my life,
Exemplar of love
Place in me a humble spirit
soften my heart that I might love my enemies
heal my wounds so they won't cloud my vision
open my ears that I might hear with compassion and understanding
help me to accept loss
teach me from defeat
remove from me a spirit of fear
and replace it with valor and courage
May I live in submission to your Divine will
anxious to serve
and gracious enough to be served
I earnestly seek a changed heart
and pray that you rid me of any residual resistance
In the name of the One who was and is and is to come.
