Praying in success

O God, I thank you that I have done well.
I thank you for my success.

Keep me from being conceited;
Keep me humble.

Help me remember all those to whom I owe my success,
Those who taught me, trained me and encouraged me
when I was tired, discouraged and depressed.

Help me not to sit back and admire myself,
But help me to see that,
Whatever I have achieved
there are still higher heights to climb,
and still further goals to reach.

Whatever praise I receive,
Help me always to be my own severest critic.

This I ask for your love’s sake, Amen.
