Pray to be selfless. Pray, pray, pray, to die to self. This will keep you from pride. Pride is so powerful! It is the opposite of selflessness. It is a killer. It is a killer of the life and love of God that could exist in your heart. Do not evaluate yourself. Ask why you are acting. Are you acting to draw others to My love or are you acting to promote yourself? Pray for selflessness. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me. Do not give in to yourself. Discipline your thoughts. Pray for strength. Pray to be Christ-like. Pray for union with Me.
