A Collect to Escape a Fall Due to Pride
High king of heaven, who took on our low state, keep us from pride and the assumption of our importance and esteem, that we would not need to be made humble or fall from such a perilous place, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who humbled himself set an example that we should follow with you an the Holy Spirit. Amen.
"When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not sit down at the place of honor, in case someone more distinguished than you has been invited by your host; and the host who invited both of you may come and say to you, 'Give this person your place,' and then in disgrace you would start to take the lowest place." - Luke 14:8-9
