Prayer for the Week
Lord Jesus Christ, you humbled yourself to serve me; yet I have such trouble humbling myself to serve others.
I know the log in my own eye prevents me from seeing myself and others clearly. And I know I have no power to remove that log on my own.
So again today, Jesus, I ask you to do Your work in me. Heal my spiritual blindness. Remove my self-centeredness. Join me to Your victorious death and resurrection that I might start living out Your new creation life.
For I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Jesus, I cannot move forward except by Your grace; be present in my relationships.
