40 Days of Prayer for America – “If my people will humble themselves…”

Peanut Gallery: I am a partisan Donald Trump supporter – a proud “deplorable,” if you will. But, first of all, I am a Christian – I have been redeemed by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord.

As much as I want Donald Trump to win the upcoming election, I am fully aware that the future of America is in God’s hands. And I believe only God can save our nation.

It’s in this spirit that I invite you to join me in 40 Days of Prayer for America.

If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 NLT

Prayer for humility:

Lord Jesus, when You walked the earth, Your humility obscured Your Kingship.

+ Teach me to accept obscurity – may I live inconspicuously, nevertheless confident that I am Your dearly loved child.

Your meekness confused the arrogant, hindering them from grasping Your purpose, Your nobleness attending to the destitute.

+ Give me Your heart and conform my will to Your purpose –  to bring Good News to the poor; to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the Lord ’s favor has come.

Teach me to model after Your eminence, to subject my human nature to humility.

+ Help me to empty myself of my prerogatives and gracefully accept my limitations.

Grant me a natural inclination to never view myself greater than anyone.

+ Open my eyes to see Your face in the most unlikely people and to treat them accordingly.

Banish all lingering sparks of self-importance that could elevate me greater than You.

+ Replace my bravado with quiet confidence in the power of Your Spirit.

Let my heart always imitate Your humility!

+ In the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
