Recently I've realised that I'm becoming more and more bossy and try to impose my point of view to the others. I also say people what they should do despite lacking basics of the needed knowledge to advise others. I do that even if I am not sure whether I'm true and, what is expectable, I often fail.

Please pray for me that I inhibit that actions. I know that I act very wrongly but the temptation is very strong.
