Matthew 5:5 (NLT)

Matthew 5:5 (MSG)

Happy, blessed, are those who have a sense of humility Jesus tells us.

Here’s a prayer that captures the importance of humility for a follower of Jesus.  Each day this week I will be praying this prayer from the devotional book I use. I share the prayer with you that you may benefit as well.

“How majestic are your ways, great God of life!  Although we know much, we still understand so little.  Yet in Jesus Christ you have offered us ‘all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge’ (Col. 2:3).  May we therefore clothe ourselves in his humility that we might receive the gifts you have placed in the treasure trove of his heart.”

It’s from “A Guide to Prayer For All Who Walk With God” by Rueben P. Job, Norman Shawchuck, and John S. Mogabgab, page 350.
