Prayer for Relief of a Troubled Soul

Relieve me Lord Jesus Christ

From the desire to be appreciated
From the desire to be desired
From the desire to be pitied
From the desire to be preferred
From the desire to be influential
From the desire to be applauded
From the desire to be dominant

Relieve me Lord Jesus Christ

From the fear of being humiliated
From the fear of being scorned
From the fear of being persecuted
From the fear of being slandered
From the fear of being forgotten
From the fear of being treated unjustly
From the fear of suspicion

  2. It reminds me a lot of the Roman Catholic "Litany of Humility" in a much shortened form. It is a lovely prayer
