A Prayer for Thursday, March 10, 2016

Twenty-Sixth Day of Lent

O God,

Make us righteous.

Don’t let us be self-righteous.

Don’t let us think we’re
better than anyone else.

Certainly don’t let us think we’re
better than everyone else.

Make us righteous.

By your grace, keep us in right
relationship with you and with people.

As we grow in grace, help us also grow
in humility—help us grow in our awareness
that you love us like you love everyone else and
that we need you as much as everyone else does.

Make us righteous.

Let our righteousness
show itself in humility.

And protect us from being
proud of our humility . . .
