Prayer based on Matthew 23:11. Themes: Humility, Servanthood, Leadership

Dear God, help me to understand that true greatness comes from serving others. May I always strive to be a servant to those around me, putting their needs before my own. Help me to be humble and selfless, and to follow the example of Jesus, who came not to be served but to serve. May I never seek power or status, but instead seek to love and serve others as you have called me to do. Amen.

Verse: But he who is greatest among you will be your servant.
Matthew 23:11

This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to strive to be a servant, rather than seeking to be the greatest.
