A Collect to Sacrifice our Pride for the Sight of God

Humble savior, who stepped out of your majesty to live with us, help us to become willing to sacrifice our pride and status if it means that we might better see you, that even as we endure ridicule, we would find greater things in being connected to you, through you who now reigns forever in glory with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘He was trying to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was short in stature. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see him, because he was going to pass that way.’ – Luke 19:3-4
