21 Days of Prayer Challenge - Day 21 - Humility

Encouragement from Brooke

It's day twenty-one.

The LAST day of your prayer challenge. Are you a mixture of relieved and sad all at the same time? What an

accomplishment! (What an amazing amount of work!) If you're finishing today you deserve a pat on the back!

Think of all the work that has been done on behalf of your sons! Congrats mom!

You might've noticed that there are actually twenty-two prayers in the Warrior Prayers eBook. I chose humility

as our last day's topic because it is such an amazing posture of the heart. Scripture just seems to scream God's

favor over those who are humble in heart.

James 4:10 says that if we're humble before the Lord, He will lift us up.

1 Peter 5:6 says that if we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God He will exalt us.

Most importantly, in Psalm 149:4 we find that it is the humble who are adorned with salvation.

Do you see that?
A humble heart is required for salvation. Just as Jesus humbled Himself unto the cross, we

must admit that we're sinners, admit that our own way isn't the right way, and humbly ask for forgiveness before

salvation comes.

Do you show humility before your sons? Do you always have to be right? Always have to win? Pray and ask the

Lord for specific ways you can show humility today so that when the time comes, your sons will know how to

show it too.

"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." ~Ephesians 4:2

Spend this last lday praying the 10 prayers of Humility for your boy(s).

I hope that you have enjoyed this challenge and, this doesn't have to be the end!  Keep your book out and start over, continuing to pray for your boys daily.  Let them hear you pray, pray in your quiet time, pray always.  Our children need their parents praying for them daily!
