Father, Your Word says that You hate a proud look, that You resist the proud but give grace to the humble. I submit myself, therefore, to You, God. In the name of Jesus, I resist the devil, and he will flee from me. I renounce every manifestation of pride in my life as sin; I repent and turn from it.
As an act of faith, I clothe myself with humility and receive Your grace. I humble myself under Your mighty hand, Lord, that You may exalt me in due time. I refuse to exalt myself. I do not think of myself more highly than I ought; I do not have an exaggerated opinion of my own importance, but rate my ability with sober judgment.
Proverbs 11:2 says, “When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom.” Father, I set myself to resist pride when it comes. I take on the attitude of a servant.
Father, thank You that You dwell with one who is of a contrite and humble spirit.
In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
