O Father, as I passionately seek to serve Jesus, keep me humble, and use your Holy Spirit to keep my heart from arrogance and feelings of self-importance. I want to have the heart of John the Baptist, who said of Jesus, "He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less."* I want to be your humble and useful servant leading others to Jesus, not glorifying myself. I pray this in the name of my Lord Jesus. Amen.
* John 3:30. See John's statement in context in our Related Scripture Readings below.
