A Humble and Humbling Prayer

Over at Jubilate Deo, Chuck Bumgardner posted a humble and humbling prayer by John Newton.

My Father, and my God,
Look upon Thy helpless child!
Thou hast laid aside Thy rod,
Thou in Christ art reconcil’d.
Hear me then, my Father, hear,
Good, and gracious, as Thou art,
Fill me with a holy fear,
Give me, Lord, a humble heart.

(Please read the whole thing here.)

This prayer cuts to the quick. May the Lord grant us humility.
