Prayer For Humility

Lord,

Blessed are the poor in spirit (Matthew 5:3). You oppose the proud, but give grace to the humble (James 4:6). You bring down the mighty from their throne and exalt those of humble estate (Luke 1:52).

Help me to humble myself like a child, so that I may enter the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:2-4), because you have said “Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it” (Mark 10:15).

Do not allow myself to justify myself before men because You know my heart and what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God (Luke 16:15). So, then, what good is it to me if I gain the whole world but lose my soul? Help me to humble myself and to take up my cross daily to follow you (Luke1:23-25).

Amen
