Humility-A Poetic Prayer

“Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Lord, Humble me…

When I’m disrespected and called names,

Humble me enough to not hold blame.

When a critic calls me fake,

Humble me to turn the other cheek.

When I’m falsely accused and lied about,

Humble me enough to protest not.

When someone else is promoted in what I’m qualified for,

Humble me to not be jealous and desire that rapport.

When somebody takes credit for my prodigy,

Humble me enough to not seek the glory.

When someone hurts me or breaks my heart,

Humble me to keep bitterness from tearing me apart.

When I’m in need and too proud to be charity,

Let the insistent generosity of others humble me.

If humiliation is what it takes to rid me of this pride,

If personal attacks is what will empty me of this selfish side,

Then let cruel words empty me.

Use the hateful acts of my enemies,

To fill me up with Your humility.

Lord, humble me…
