The more we study Christ

ahhh one realizes there

is no room for the crawling

insidious snake of pride!

Forgive us Lord!

The more we study Christ

ahhh one realizes pride

can be very subtle.

Forgive us Lord!

The more we study Christ,

ahh one realizes pride

will never help us to know

or grow in Christ even more!

For pride is such an impediment to the

loving growth and  spiritual formation

of Jesus Christ in our lives and souls!

Forgive us Lord!

Help us to really see our own

pride in the depths of our souls!

Forgive us Lord!

Fill us with the Spirit given

fruit of Christ sourced humility!

Forgive us and fill us Lord

with all that you are and

empty us of rationalizing

our carnal and sinful self.

Forgive us Lord !
