Prayer for humility

           Those who want to save their life will lose it,
          and those who lose their life for my sake,
          and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.
                         —Mark 8.35

God, I don’t have the strength to fail.
I don’t have the courage to let go.
I don’t have the life in me to die.
I am asking you to wound me.
I need to be broken-hearted.
I need the humility to receive your grace.
I need to be cracked open.

Of course… you are already working within me, aren’t you?
The strong walls I have around me
are really an illusion, aren’t they?

Light, and a gentle breeze,
enter through an open door.

Here and now… I will kneel.
I will trust.
