Prayer for August 31: Please pray with me. God of humility, we pray a dangerous prayer – help us to be humble.  Lord, be gentle with us in this prayer. We have an ideal of what it means to be humble – a way that makes us look and feel good about ourselves. But Lord, we know that there is so much more to humility than this. Do what you must to teach us this way of life so that we may offer it to others as we serve those around us. Amen.
