Father, the greatness that this world values is not pleasing to You. It is an exaltation of human beings created in Your image who were meant to give glory to You. People continue to rob You of Your glory. Help me not continue to sin against You in this way. Forgive me for taking the glory due You and coveting for more with my sinful pride and self love.
Lord, You are all-knowing and good. Help me to humble myself before You always. I acknowledge my lack of knowledge and understanding. Give me faith to trust and obey that Your sovereign plan and ways alone are all that I need to go through this life safely and victoriously. Help me decrease, so that You may increase beautifully in my life.
Lord, Creator of all, my mind is blown away by the wonders of all Your works. How wonderfully You have created each person, making each one with a unique design. Teach me to appreciate and celebrate each person and not boast, envy or despise any disparity I find in myself and others. May You alone be exalted in my life.
