40 Days of Prayer to Change America
(Day 39: Humility)
"This is the one I esteem; he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word."
--- Isaiah 66:2
All too often Americans are seen as arrogant or prideful. Years ago, there was a book entitled The Ugly American that told of how Americans in the foreign service often perpetuated that view. It's time for a new reputation for Americans that is in line with what God desires. But before you nod in passive agreement and move on, consider where pride has seeped into your own life. It's a deep-rooted sin for us.
A Spiritual revolution in America will take place when we walk in humility before God and each other. We will find ourselves in a place of receiving blessing from God when we have a contrite Spirit. And we can expect revival throughout the land when the church is filled with those who tremble at His Word!
- Humble yourself before the Lord in prayer this day, and recognize the great need you have to be one who trembles at the Word of God.
- Pray for another Great Awakening to sweep the nation as the Lord's people learn to humble themselves.
