Prayer to Overcome Selfishness

Lord, you are a selfless God because you sent your Son, Jesus to die for my sins so I may have eternal life.

Thank you for showing me what it means to be selfless.

I struggle with selfishness most of the times and I know it is not your will for me.

Help me consider others in everything I do and know that the world does not revolve around me.

respect others

Many times I don’t feel like sharing what I have with others.

I want to keep everything to myself yet this is not how I want to live my life.

Help me overcome my selfishness and become a selfless person who considers the needs of others.

They need my help and I can be of help to them when they face difficulties.  

May your word wash over my spirit and soul and heal every wound that makes me act in selfishness.

I recognize that being self centered is a struggle I have had since childhood.

Your word has the power to heal and deliver me from selfishness.

He sends his word, and heals them, and delivers them from their graves. Psalm 107:20

I want to be more like Christ who is selfless and loves without conditions.  

Grant me the grace to consider others’ opinions or ideas when we are discussing things.

What others think matters and adds on to my knowledge of the topic at hand.

May I give others a chance to express themselves without fearing my reaction. 

Help me abide in you according to John 15:4 so I may bear much fruit for your kingdom.

John 15:4 bible verse

Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. John 15:4

Without you I can do nothing because my strength and wisdom come from you.

When I veer off the right path or drift away from you, help me get back on track. My hope is in you because you are my savior and I can depend on you.

Where I struggle to surrender to you, may the Holy Spirit help me for He is my Helper.

Today I surrender to you my selfish ways and I ask you to teach me how to be selfless and show concern for the interests of others.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
