Two Very Different Prayers

“Two men went up to pray. The Pharisee prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am
not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or like this tax
collector.’ But the tax collector prayed, ‘God, be merciful to me, a
sinner!’ This man was justified, rather than the other. Everyone who exalts
himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
