God Hears Prayers of Humility

Thought for Today: “God Hears Prayers of Humility”

The Bible says that pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 1:18).

What pride does in prayer is that it gives us a false sense of self-sufficiency. When asked for prayer, a prideful person says, “I’m alright. There’s really nothing I need prayer for.” None of us are alright, we are all sinners saved by grace, but still sinners, and the worse sort of pride is saying that we have none.

One person described pride as the national religion of hell.

This theme of God raising the humble and taking down the prideful is a theme found throughout the Bible. In fact, pride leads the list of those things that God hates the worst as found in Proverbs 6:17. But contrast it in Proverbs 3:34 saying, “He scorns the scornful, but gives grace to the humble.”

John Lloyd Ogilvie said, “Humility opens the floodgates of the heart of God; it’s the basic ingredient of a prayer that God will answer.”

Dwight Moody, said, “God sends no one away empty except those who are full of themselves.”
