A Collect for the Capacity to Humble Ourselves

High King of Heaven, who stooped low to take on our frail flesh, give us likewise the capacity to humble ourselves for the sake of love, that we would discover freedom from the trappings of our pride and be made available for you to lift us up in even greater measure, through you who now reigns in heaven with the Father and Holy Spirit forever. Amen. “I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted.” – Luke 18:14
