A Prayer for Generous Self-Sacrifice
Blessed Lord Jesus, in all eternity you enjoyed perfect harmony with your Father. Yet, you did not see equality with the Father as something to be grasped, but instead, you emptied yourself and took the form of a servant. This you did not because you had to, but because of your tremendous love and generosity toward mankind. I thank you for this incredible gift of love. Therefore, I humbly stand before you to beg of your mercy. By your grace, mold and refine me until I can learn to live as humbly and as sacrificially as you have lived. Give me compassion and generosity that refuses to stand by idly but give me a true zeal to see your name glorified so that all my doings in this life might bring honor to you.Amen
Today, I will thank you for Your gift of self sacrifice and pray for compassion and generosity to glorify You in everything I do.
