Prayer for Humility

From the desire to be esteemed,

Deliver us, Jesus.

From the desire of being loved by all…

From the desire to be honored …

From the desire to be praised …

Deliver us, Jesus.

From the desire of being preferred to others…

From the desire of being consulted …

From the desire of being approved …

Deliver us, Jesus.

From the fear of being humiliated …

From the fear of being despised…

From the fear of suffering rebukes …

Deliver us, Jesus.

From the fear of being forgotten, ridiculed and wronged…

Deliver us, Jesus.

That I out of my riches may give to others in their poverty,

Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That I may know the depth of my own poverty

Jesus, grant me the grace to understand it.

That others may increase and I may decrease…

Jesus may it be.
