Problem with pride


#1

The Lord showed me how pride is the root cause of all my problems and other sins. Please pray for me that the Lord will heal me of this pride and teach me how to be humble. Thanks.


#2

It’s the root of most problems and sins for all of mankind, you aren’t alone at all. I’ll be praying for you.


#3

I am praying for you.

Praying for you.

Remember O Most Gracious Virgin Mary
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence we fly unto thee O Virgin of virgins, our Mother.
To thee do we come; before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer them. Amen.

As St Therese said, “humility is truth” so I guess we need to be honest about ourselves, as you are being now.
I ask You Jesus to help Wesley be aware of each time that he is tempted to pride, so that he faces his own human reality honestly, and recognises the fallibility in others without judgement. It’s natural for us to defend ourselves, our self image, our position…and that’s the function of pride I guess. But it’s okay to be oneself, okay to be human, but Wesley, like the rest of us, needs Your grace to accept imself with charity and reality, and to accept others with charity and reality, and then to welcome Your grace to carry us further into genuine Christian love. You said, "Love others as you love yourself’ so help us, help Wesley, to love himself rigthly in order to love others rightly.

Lord, Your creations display great pride,
Achievements that continually resonate!
Your Divine work luxuriates in eminence;
Your Grandeur leaving me speechless!
Resulting from Your intrinsic sweet nature,
Exalted pride is Yours by legal right.
Endow me with pride for my achievements;
Sheltering me against impious vanity.
May my life mirror spiritual balance,
Respect and satisfaction in my endeavours.
Your Divinity is reflected in all things;
I behold the beauty of Your pride!
Amen
