my plea

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.  Honor one another above yourselves. – Romans 12:10

Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.  – 1 Corinthians 10:24

Love…is not self-seeking. – 1 Corinthians 13:4,5

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. – Phillipians 2:3

Turn my heart toward your statues and not toward selfish gain. – Psalm 119:36

Search my heart, Oh God.  Turn my desires away from myself and point them towards You.  Transform this selfishness into selflessness.  Your will, not mine.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  And if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him. – 1 John 5:14,15
