Pray to Lose

We pray to lose our self-centered pride when we pray, “hallowed be thy name.”
We pray to lose our self-centeredness when we pray, “thy kingdom come.”
We pray to lose our wills when we pray, “thy will be done.”
We pray to lose our self-sufficiency when we pray, “give us our daily bread.”
We pray to lose our sins when we pray, “forgive us our sins.”
We pray to lose our grudges and pains when we pray, “as we forgive others.”
We pray to lose our temptations when we pray, “lead us not into temptation.”
We pray to lose the evil in our lives when we pray, “deliver us from evil.”

Fr. Dave Ruppert
