When Jesus is approached about promotions in rank, He responds by calling for deeper sacrifice. The proper Christian response to ambition is service.

Does my Christian community honor those who serve others first? Am I attracted to leadership and ambitious? Does my ambition begin and end with a willingness to be last rather than first?

Dear God, I pray for a generous mind and heart. If I am ambitious may it be for the greater common good. Help me to imitate Jesus in Love.
