Philippians 2:3-11

Dear Father, One God of your one holy people,

Help all of us to do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility help us count each other better than ourselves.

May we look out for the interests of each other, not just our own.

Let our attitude be the same as was in Christ Jesus, who made himself nothing and obeyed you, our Father, even in the matter of dying.

Help me humbly and obediently to exalt Jesus, even as you have exalted him and given him a name that is above every name, that every knee should bow and every tongue confess - to the glory of you, our God and our Father.

In the name of Jesus Christ, the source of our unity and salvation, I ask these things. Amen.
