Prayer: Help me to be like Jesus

Lord, I give you thanks for giving me hope for your good purpose.

You have instructed me to do all things without arguing or grumbling, and in being blameless and pure, be a light to this world (Philippians 2:12-18). I pray that I may be able to live out a life that serves others and genuinely all for You.

Lord, would you help me to be like Jesus, who exemplified how to be humble and obedient?

Would you rid me of my vanity and help me to live a life of genuine humbleness? And as did Paul, may I be able to experience the joy of the Lord which is unknown to the world, in sacrificing myself and serving others.

In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
