Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a prayer for humility


We grieve the state of our nation, O Lord. We grieve the trauma caused to people of color. We grieve what they have lost, we grieve our apathy, we grieve their hurt. We grieve the active and passive ways bias has broken down the truth that each person is made in the image of God.

We cry out to You, Father, to help us understand the value You have given each precious life. Help us to now just see this value, but live this value out. We also ask for Your help to see each perspective, so our understanding of the way sin in this world destroys is made more complete, true, and more faithful to reality.

We are prideful people... our pride deceives our hearts. It makes them hard. We acknowledge Your desire for us is a soft heart that sees the world and see people as you see them.

Your words reminds us that you oppose the proud and give grace to the humble.

And You give more grace.

Lord, please open our eyes to our own pride, for changing the world starts with changing us. So change us, Lord. Reveal to us our sin, humble us so we repent, and then give us the courage to move that grace You give into the world.

You are redeeming this world, O Lord. And you are using us to do it. Keep us humble, give us wisdom, and give us Your eyes. Your heart. So that we may love as You love.
