Uncovering- Part 1

Happy New Year! I pray this message finds you off to a good start to 2022. Please join me for part 1 of this series: Uncovering, as I share a word on my heart from Ephesians 5 verses 1-10.

~~~

Here is a prayer to go along with the video and our desire to imitate Jesus alone. It was originally written by Rafael Cardinal Merry del Val and is called the Litany of Humility.

From the desire of being praised, deliver me Jesus. From the desire of being honored, deliver me, Jesus. From the desire of being sought after, deliver me, Jesus. From the desire of being consulted, deliver me, Jesus. From the desire of being approved, deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being comfort and ease, deliver me Jesus.

From the fear of being humiliated, deliver me, Jesus. From the fear of being criticized, deliver me, Jesus. From the fear of being passed over, deliver me, Jesus. From the fear of being forgotten, deliver me, Jesus. From the fear of being lonely, deliver me, Jesus. From the fear of being hurt, deliver me, Jesus. From the fear of suffering, deliver me, Jesus.

That others may be loved more than I, That in the opinion of the world, others may increase, and I may decrease, That others may be praised and I unnoticed, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like yours. O Jesus, meek and humble, strengthen me with your Spirit. O Jesus, meek and humble, teach me your ways. O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, help me put my self importance aside to love deeply like you. Amen.
