Dear God, deliver me from arrogance. In so many areas, in so many ways, my chief defect is my prideful feeling of self-sufficiency. It takes me away from you, and I begin to believe myself to be a leader. I have dominion over others. My reliance on you, and hence any claim to humility I may have, slip away.

Knock me down, O Lord. Remove my pride. Make me ready to be a servant. Let me seek your will above all.

(Letter #1096)
