A Prayer for Your Husband’s Humility
Father, we know You hate the proud and love the humble. You have instructed us to not think of ourselves more highly than we ought to, but to think of ourselves with sober judgment. (Romans12:3) Make my husband a man who doesn’t think himself better than those around him. Give him a heart willing to honor others above himself. Let him serve others without ulterior motives, selfish ambitions or vain conceit, but rather be humbly and graciously willing to be a servant to others. (Phil.2:3-4)
Father, make my husband careful of the words he speaks. You do not find boasting good or of any worth. (1Cor.5-6) Your word tells us that whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. (Matt.23:12) Do not let my husband be a man brought to destruction, shame or disgrace due to boastful words, selfish actions or a proud heart. Let other men praise him and not himself. (Pr.27:2) Let other men honor him and not himself.
Father, You have promised to supply a humble man with wealth, honor, life and wisdom. (Pr.22:4; 11:2) So develop in him a heart that is not proud and eyes that are not haughty. (Ps.131:1) Teach him even as he sleeps,(Ps.16:7) to be obedient, ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, showing true humility to all men. (Titus3:1-2)
Teach him also, to not concern himself with things that seem great and wonderful on this earth, but instead, to still and quiet his soul before You and put his hope in You both now and forevermore. (Ps.131:1-3) In Jesus’ name. Amen.
