A Prayer for Humility
“Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility for ‘God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.’ Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.”
1 Peter 5:5, 6
We acknowledge that we are members of a greater Kingdom community with all the saints. So, we submit ourselves to You and to one another. We humble our hearts before Your mighty hand and ask that You would fill our hearts with Your spirit of compassion, tenderness and grace. Help us to look to others as more important than ourselves and to have the same mind as Christ who took on the form of a servant for humanity’s sake.
Lord Jesus, You tell us that apart from You we can do nothing. Therefore, we submit ourselves to Your authority asking that You would lead us and guide us as a people of faith. Remove pride from our hearts and help us to value one another in meekness and grace so that our lives may reflect Christ as we journey forward. We ask this in the name of the One who humbled Himself and died on the cross for our sin. Amen.
