Lord Jesus Christ you are meek and humble of heart. We pray that You grant us the same meekness and humility so that God may reveal to us those things He has hidden from the wise and the learned.
Give us the right wisdom so that, despite our academic qualifications, we may remain childlike before You because it is through humility that we will be able to serve mostly the poor, sick, beggers, the blind and other least of our brothers and sisters.
Jesus Christ deliver me from the desire of being loved without loving back. Remove from me the desire of being praised by others. Help me, Dear Lord, that I may desire others to be esteemed more than I. I pray all this through Christ our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
