“When I try to bring thy will to mine….”

Convicting wisdom from “Living by Prayer”, a prayer in The Valley of Vision:

Let me know that the work of prayer is to bring
my will to thine,
and that without this it is folly to pray;

When I try to bring thy will to mine it is
to command Christ,
to be above him, and wiser than he:
this is my sin and pride.

so what do you think?
