Lord, please forgive me when my service to others is conditional.
Help me never to mask a true servant's heart with false humility.
I pray that if I ever start to help someone in need, that my motives be pure; not self indulging.
Father, if someone is in need, give me an honest heart that helps them unconditionally.
Let me not ask what I will receive in return or if it will benefit me in any way.
Let me ask only for You to receive the glory
and the person in need be blessed.
Please show me when my heart is not in the right place
and never let others be hurt by my manipulation or selfishness.
I ask these things from a heart that has been wounded by other's thoughtlessness.
Help me never to inflict that kind of pain on others.
Bless my husband, Lord, for his faithfulness to You
and the MANY times I have seen him do for others
when he needed help the most.
