A Collect to Bring Low the Proud

Lord of Heaven and earth, for whom we wait for the fulfillment of this age, humble those who have lifted themselves above their neighbors in arrogance, that they might learn how to love and what you have ordained status to be about in your kingdom of service and justice, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who showed us the meaning of humility and sat down at your right hand in the Spirit. Amen. ‘He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts.’ – Luke 1:51
