Prayer for Humility

Earnestly praying this one prayer to God :

‘ That of His great goodness He would make known to you, and take from your heart, every kind and form and degree of Pride, whether it be from evil spirits, or your own corrupt nature; and that He would awaken in you the deepest depth and truth of that Humility which can make you capable of His light and Holy Spirit.’

”Reject every thought, but that of waiting and praying in this matter from the bottom of your heart, with such truth and earnestness, as people in torment wish to pray and be delivered from it.’

Pride and Humility  are the two master powers, two kingdom at war for the eternal possession of man.  (William Law)
