Prayer for Pride
Pride defends me from shame and guilt
The price is that I have to live a lie
Pretend I am not what I am
Pride invites me to condemn others
To know that I am better
To know that I am brighter
The price is that I have to live alone
Pride offers me power
The price is living in a mirage as a king while dying in a desert
How to be rid of pride?
How to avoid it addicting presence in my heart?
How to accept humility as the better path.
Honesty over lies
Respect over condemnation
Weakness over power
This is the better way
The way of the life
Lord, grant me a humble heart today and save me from my heart of pride.
