a prayer

I've learned that to be a CHRISTian means to be a follower of Christ. But I fail to follow the example of Christ daily. Every single day I wallow in my pride, my self-righteousness, my selfishness, my flesh - my sin. Have mercy upon me, Lord, a sinner! I remember that the apostle Paul called himself the chief of sinners, but I think he was wrong. It's me.

Heavenly Father,

have mercy upon me.
Teach me the patience of Christ.
Teach me the discipline of Christ.
Teach me the self-control of Christ.
Teach me the gentleness and kindness of Christ.
Teach me the hatred for sin of Christ
Teach me the love of Christ.

  1. when we view ourselves as the chiefest of sinners, we view God in a much higher way =]
