"Be Thou exalted over my reputation. Make me ambitious to please Thee
even if as a result I must sink into obscurity and my name be forgotten
as a dream. Rise, O Lord, into Thy proper place of honor, above my
ambitions, above my likes and dislikes, above my family, my health and
even my life itself. Let me decrease that Thou mayest increase; let me sink that Thou mayst rise above."
A Prayer - A.W. Tozer
