Father, You are calling upon me to be completely humble and gentle; to be patient, bearing with others in love(Eph. 4:2). Please empower me with Your spirit to be obedient to this command.
You've warned me that when pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom(Prov. 11:2). You instruct Your people to listen carefully and heed Your instruction because prie can cause the Lord's flock to be taken captive (Jer. 13:17).
But You promise to guide the humble in what is right and teach them Your way(Ps. 25:9). Give me a humble heart so I will follow You in what is right and learn Your way.
Take me as you find me, all my fears and failures.
