Prayer Model: Spiritual Battle Prayers • Based on Proverbs 11:2, 16:18, 26:12; 1 Timothy 3:6
The Bible tells us that pride comes before the fall. Pride can be a very real issue in our lives, but we have the power to overcome it through Jesus.
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. – Proverbs 11:2 NIV
Practicing humility requires overcoming pride in our lives. Just as you confess other sins, regularly confess your pride to God. Submit it to Him, asking Him to help you walk in humility, free of pride and self-absorption. If you feel like pride is an issue that continues to surface in your life, confess it daily and bring it before God.
“Father God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I know pride only keeps me from You. I put down anything that would cause me to have pride in my heart in dealing with other people. Help me to prioritize others over myself. I ask you God, to remind me daily that true humility is not thinking less of myself, it’s thinking of myself less. I humble myself before You and come to You like a child.“
Note: One of the best ways to humble ourselves is to mix prayer with fasting.
