A Collect to Cast off Pride
King of all kings, who took on the life of a servant, show us where we harbor arrogance and self-importance, that we might humble ourselves and see ourselves aright, casting off self-importance and becoming ever more content to lift up one another so that the whole community is blessed, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who gave us an example and was exalted to your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
'For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself more highly than you ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.' - Rom. 12:3
