I heard a leader pray this week. He asked for some pretty big and bold things from God – for his life, his family, and his ministry. He asked for some things that, if God doesn’t come through, will risk his ministry. Here’s how he ended his prayer…

Let me be a righteous and effective and Godly influence on my family, my community, my church, and the world.

Let me a blessing to others around me.

Let me live a life of integrity and wisdom.

And above all, let me not be puffed up with pride and arrogance as all these things come to pass.
