40 Days of Prayer: Day 24

Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Philippians 2:5-8

Dear Jesus,
As I think about Your life here on earth there is one adjective that describes it perfectly: humility. Lord, I long to be like You in this way. Humble me Lord, and take away my pride. Show me how to be like You: selfless, kind, gentle and patient. I know that humility is not my strong suit, and I want to be like You. I thank You that You humbled Yourself and were obedient to the point of death, for my sake. Show me how to be selfless and fill me up with Your humility, that others will see You through me.

For Your Name,
