short prayer for humility
In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray to become a person of a low heart.
I know too many times I let my flesh take over and my arrogance rules me. I don’t want that kind of behavior in my life at all. I am too proud and I admit that I seek to belittle others in order to elevate myself in the eyes of men. I lack respect because I think I am better than my neighbor. I long for the root of humility to be present in my heart. That I fear Your name because with her I know that I would move forward every day with humility and reverence.
I want once and for all to give up taking pleasure in living in my complacency. Deliver me from this hidden pride and this desire that others esteem in me.
I must be able to accept when I am wrong and above all be able to ask forgiveness without difficulty when I have not done well and especially when I know it very well inside me. I don’t want to resist anymore because that puts me in bad situations and little by little, in a bad state.
I know that all that I have comes from You and by Your grace, I can advance from glory to glory and from victory to victory. I have already conquered on pride! Amen.
