Prayer Focus: Humility is the action of putting others first, displaying an attitude of simplicity, gentleness, respectfulness, and modesty. James 1:9 declares, “Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position” (NIV). In God’s economy, showing humility makes you important to God and His kingdom.
- Ask God to forgive you of “thinking more highly of yourself than you ought to think” (See Romans 12:3, ESV).
- Ask your Heavenly Father to forgive you of anything short of humility in your dealings with Him and with others.
- Thank God that He “has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west” (Psalm 103:12, NLT), reminding yourself of His great, gentle and undeserving love toward you.
