Prayer based on Luke 6:42. Themes: Judgment, Hypocrisy, Self-Reflection.
Help me to see clearly the faults and shortcomings in my own life before I try to point out those of others. May I not be a hypocrite, but rather a humble and honest servant who seeks to remove the beam from my own eye before attempting to remove the speck of chaff from my brother’s eye.
Grant me the wisdom and discernment to recognize my own faults and the strength to overcome them. May I be a shining example of your love and grace, and may my actions and words always reflect your truth.
Thank you for your mercy and forgiveness, and for the opportunity to grow and learn in your presence. May I always seek to serve you and others with a pure heart and a clear mind.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Verse: Or how can you tell your brother, ‘ Brother, let me remove the speck of chaff that is in your eye,’ when you yourself don’t see the beam that is in your own eye? You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck of chaff that is in your brother’s eye.
This is a Command: The verse commands the reader to first remove the beam from their own eye before attempting to remove the speck of chaff from their brother’s eye.
