Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this line from Jerry Bridges.
“The character trait of humility is the second-most frequently taught trait in the New Testament, second only to love.”
1 Peter 5:5
New American Standard Bible 1995
5 You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and worships You. Bless You, for sending Jesus into the world to be our perfect example of humility. Thank You for being so kind to us when we fail at hitting the mark of humility and Christlikeness in our pursuit of You. Praise You for pursuing us first and empowering us to reveal Your love to others when we submit to Your will. Help us to deny our passions and reflect on the greatest passion of all, Your love for us. Father, we thank You that You have heard us. Amen in Jesus’ name and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
If this prayer blessed you or brought you peace, please share this with someone in need.
