A Collect to Glorify God Above Ourselves

Lord Jesus, whose power and glory are greater than all we could imagine, grant us a willingness to set aside our pride and our status to point toward you, that we would not take that which we do not deserve, and as you are exalted, you might graciously lift us up with you, through you who reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit in perpetual light and love, world without end. Amen. ‘He proclaimed, “The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals.”‘ – Mark 1:7
