God calls us to humble ourselves before Him and this includes when we come to Him in prayer. Read from the Thrive Journaling Devotional Bible for Women about finding the courage to humble ourselves and pray.
“Then 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
Love Letter from God
You are My child, and I love to answer you. There is great power in humility and prayer. Real change starts in your heart, permeates your home, and then echoes throughout the world. You have the ability to lift up anything in prayer, and I will hear you. You also have the gift of repentance, and in one prayer you can make yourself right with Me. I will forgive you, and that blessing will affect not only you but also the people around you. Don’t ever give in to hopelessness or sin. I have given you the power to live above such things. Walk with Me, bring everything to Me in prayer, and watch My mighty hand move in your life.
Your heavenly Father
We tend to blame everything and everyone in this world for the condition that we are in, but our first response must be instead to humble ourselves and pray. According to God’s promise, He will then heal the land in which His children live, starting with their own hearts.
Treasure of Truth
Our humility and prayer invite God’s forgiveness and restoration.
