Prayer, Plain and Simple

Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

For the Lord delights in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.
Psalm 149:4 NLT

Father,

I ask that you would teach me humility. Give me grace to not simply swallow my pride when I am made aware of it, but rather to repent and receive your forgiveness. Give me a heart that is willing to be known for who I am, strengths and weaknesses, successes and failures.

And, Lord, please grant us leaders that are humble. Provide leaders who are willing to bow to your wisdom, to repent and change, and to seek wisdom from others who have sought after true humility. I ask this in Jesus’ Name.

Amen.
