Help us receive all you’ve given and find it’s better to give than receive from this world.
Help us to see you lowering yourself and lifting us out of the pit so that we might be happy for now to take the lowest place in this world.
Help us to feel your hands washing our feet, so that we would desire to serve rather than be served in this world.
Let our eyes be fixed on you and your cross-the way you emptied yourself on our behalf, so that in this world we would now love to decrease in order to let you increase.
Let us feel your crown of thorns and know the crown that awaits those who follow you, so that we might take up our cross today and crown you with the praise you deserve.
Oh Lord, the only way we can change this world is to first let you change us. Let us see you giving up the world for us so that we might give all our ambitions in this world right back to you. And let us be changed so that we can change this world.
