A prayer for all of us who fail

Lord, teach me when I fail. Remind me of my imperfections. Remind me that apart from You I can do nothing. Remind me that humility is a great virtue. Remind me to trust in You more completely. Remind me that, even in my failures, You are at work in and through me. Remind me that You are MYShepherd who walks with me through every failure. Remind me that You will lift me up when I fail. Remind me that to love You above all else--above my success, above my pride--is essential and necessary at all times, in all places, before all people.
