A Prayer for Serving Others

Servant God, who left your throne in heaven to rescue the world and me, help me be a servant too. Jesus, who honored the dishonored by washing feet and showed love by serving your followers, help me bring dignity to the disgraced and show love through my actions. Give me eyes to see, and ears to hear your voice, and courage and compassion to follow where you lead. Amen.

Scripture: “Rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:7–8).
