When Stuck in the Comparison Trap

One God ruling in my thankful heart,

I’m praising you for guarding my mind.

Be my protector, forever more.


Disperse your Spirit through my ambitions.

When I compare myself to others;

Direct my eyes to your word, for approval.


I exalt you for strengthening my soul.

Fill me Lord, with your spiritual energy.


Jesus, you are perfect righteousness.

Thank you, for your loving sacrifice,


Keep me from adjusting your standards;

according to what I desire.


Allow me to feel your Almighty Strength!

And help me Lord, to remember your word.


Give me wisdom to resist evil thoughts,

and refocus my attention towards you.


Build up my holy courage:


One God ruling in my thankful heart, and I

When I believed on you Jesus,

I was credited with righteousness.


Jesus, I praise your Holy Name.
