Do you want to grow in humility? Pray.
Prayer is an act of humility. When we pray, we more clearly realize who we are in relation to who God is. When that happens, our pride should melt away in the brightness of God’s glory only to be replaced by a deep sense of humility.
In prayer, we recognize and confess that God is sovereign and we’re not. If we don’t acknowledge the sovereignty of God, why would we pray?
When we pray, we recognize that we’re dependent upon God, and not He on us.
We recognize that He knows best, and we don’t.
When we pray, our will is molded to His will, not the other way around.
The proud don’t pray – at least they don’t pray with right motives.
Prayer comes from a humble heart and helps create one, too.
