A Prayer for Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Seventeenth Day of Easter

O God,

We praise you that your Son Jesus humbled himself to the point of death on the cross and that you then raised him up.

Help us to think, to speak, and to act in ways that demonstrate the fact that we have been crucified with Christ and that we have been raised to new life in him.

Help us by the grace of Christ who is in us to humble ourselves--not for the sake of reward but for the sake of service, not for the sake of gain but for the sake of sacrifice, and not for the sake of recognition but for the sake of love--and in humbling ourselves let us experience the joy of being lifted up by you.
