Forgive me for boosting my ego at the expense of someone else, Lord.
Help me to be honest about the attributes and achievements to which I can lay claim,
for the sake of my self-confidence and worth; but to do it without putting other people down.
Let me build bridges rather than barriers, and as you are merciful to me,
so may I be to others.Amen.  (Roots for churches 2019)
