Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make our hearts like unto thine.
This prayer, the Psalter of Jesus, is a beautiful prayer for humility.
The Universal Prayer, which is also beautiful.
A Prayer for the Virtue of Humility
Lord Jesus, when You walked the earth, Your humility obscured Your Kingship. Your meekness confused the arrogant, Hindering them from grasping Your purpose, Your nobleness attending to the destitutes. Teach me to model after Your eminence, To subject my human nature to humility. Grant me a with a natural inclination To never view myself greater than anyone. Banish all lingering sparks of self-importance That could elevate me greater than You. Let my heart always imitate Your humility!
Prayer to Saint Anthony of Padua, Example of Humility
Dear Saint Anthony, after all these years in the school of Christ, I still haven't learned the lesson of true humility. My feelings are easily ruffled. Quick to take offense, I am slow to forgive. Saint Anthony, Example of Humility, teach me the importance and necessity of this Christian virtue. In the presence of Jesus, who humbled Himself and whom the Father exalted, remember also these special intentions of mine. [name them]
Prayer to St. Joseph by Pope St. Pius X
Glorious St. Joseph, model of all who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work in the spirit of penance in expiation of my many sins; to work conscientiously by placing love of duty above my inclinations; to gratefully and joyously deem it an honor to employ and to develop by labor the gifts I have received from God, to work methodically, peacefully, and in moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from it through weariness or difficulty to work; above all, with purity of intention and unselfishness, having unceasingly before my eyes death and the account I have to render of time lost, talents unused, good not done, and vain complacency in success, so baneful to the work of God. All for Jesus, all for Mary, all to imitate thee, O patriarch St. Joseph! This shall be my motto for life and eternity.
Also, this may really help you: Try going to confession at least once a week. Examine your conscience with an examination of conscience sheet. If it helps you to feel more saddened by sins, write them out. If you can go to Mass more than once a week, do that also.
Next time you feel tempted to humiliate, bite your tongue. It may take practice, but you can do it.
God bless. :)
Those ar very beautful. I have already copied and saved them for daily use!
