Today’s Prayer Challenge: To Think of & Care for Others More Than I Do for Myself

“3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. 4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of the others.” ~ Philippians 2:3 — 4 (KJV)

Dear Lord,

We first and foremost come to You giving You all the praise, glory, and honor as the one and only true and living God. We thank You for salvation — sending Your Son to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have eternal life with You in heaven. Please forgive us of our sins, and we thank You in advance for helping us to overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings.

Lord, we come with a special prayer today that You will help us to think of others more than we think of ourselves. More specifically, Father, may we practice selflessness and humility. Lord, because You take care of our needs, we can better spend our time encouraging, complimenting, and serving others rather than mulling over our own needs or hunting for pats on the back. You have blessed us so that we can be a blessing to others — both emotionally and tangibly — and may we do just that.

It is in the magnificent name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen.
