Prayer for Humility
by Jessica Gerald
12/07/2006 / Prayers
Remind us that humility is an important virtue. It is the key to many other blessings from you. For you have said that whoever humbles himself like a child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:4)
Don't let us exalt ourselves, or we will be humbled. Rather let us humble ourselves and be exalted by you. (Matthew 23:12) For you oppose the proud, but give grace to the humble. (James 4:6)
Give us the humility and godly reverence and fear that bring wealth, honor, and life. (Proverbs 22:4) Remind us that the fear of the Lord teaches us wisdom, and humility comes before honor. (Proverbs 15:33)
Take away the type of pride that will bring us low. Give us a lowly spirit that will gain honor. (Proverbs 29:23) Enable us to humble ourselves under your mighty hand, knowing that in due time you will lift us up. (1 Peter 5:6)
In the name of Jesus we pray,
