Prayer Guide

A person’s pride will bring him low, but one who has a lowly spirit will gain honor. [Prov 29:23 NET]

In general, pride is at the bottom of all great mistakes. All other passions do occasionally good; but wherever pride puts in its word everything goes wrong.

~ John Ruskin ~

He that is proud eats up himself: pride is his own glass, his own trumpet, his own chronicle; and whatever praises itself but in the deed, devours the deed in the praise.

~ William Shakespeare ~

Save me alike from foolish pride

Or impious discontent;

At aught Thy wisdom hath denied,

Or aught Thy wisdom lent.

~ Alexander Pope ~

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I pray that I may not let pride keep me down when it may be mine to be carried to the heights. With tenderness take me out of myself, that I may see how pride deceives, and destroys an humble spirit. Help me to master both stubbornness and pride. Amen.
