Daily Prayer for October 4th, 2020    

Good morning, God—thank you! 😊

Holy Spirit, please let me do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in obedience to your word, count others more significant than myself—look not only to my interests but also to the interests of others. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Proverbs 16:18 ESV

18 Pride goes before destruction,
and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Philippians 2:1-10 ESV

Christ’s Example of Humility

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant,[c] being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

Proverbs 27:2 ESV

Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;
a stranger, and not your own lips.
