A Collect to Abandon our Pride

Great teacher, who gave up your glory for our sake, teach us to abandon all pride and lust for glory, that we would be free to empty ourselves as you did, willing to take the lowest place out of love for one another, through you who was exalted again to the throne of heaven, seated with the Father and Holy Spirit in perpetual glory. Amen. ‘Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness.’ – Phil. 2:5-7
