Wednesday Prayer: Humility

Augustine of Hippo, a fifth-century bishop and theologian, wrote, "The way to Christ is first through humility, second through humility, third through humility.  If humility does not precede and accompany and follow every good work we do, if it is not before us to focus on, if it is not beside us to lean upon, if it is not behind us to fence us in, pride will wrench from our hand any good deed we do at the very minute we do it."

Lord, we pray for humility.
