Thank you pastor Jack! I have been humbled by God, and it is not a pleasant experience. I have learned that I need to repeatedly humble myself before Him. Daily, or as often as possible.

Writing my prayers in a journal, and answers to my prayers in a journal, has been very helpful to me. I keep myself accountable, as my prayers are in writing, and I can look back on them. If I see pride in there, it is recorded…… Thankfully I get new chances to repent and ask for forgiveness. 🙂 Writing the answers to prayers in the journal helps me to give credit where credit is due. All glory to God alone!

Thanks Jim. A prayer journal is a most excellent idea because it reminds us of God’s faithfulness. Thanks for your insight, as always bro.

Thank you for this blessed article 🙂 I’ve learn so much about pride and more important is that I’ve learn more about God and the bible which can light and lead my way more brighter

I am glad it was helpful Adiee. I am still learning too and so all glory to God.

I want to know if I am asked to pray and I refuse because I feel others pray better or they have more to say pray longer. Is that a form of pride

Jack Wellman January 9, 2019 at 4:17 pm

God can use any prayer, no matter how short or what manner it is. God does not look on the flowerly language or the right words to say, but He looks at the heart. By refusing to pray, it may be pride, and you may think they might have “better” things to pray for, but you may bring up things they don’t think of. Every member of the Body is important! Pray for God to be glorified, souls to be saved, and strength to avoid temptation and sin…those are always good things to pray for. Step out of your comfort zone…it gets easier with time, and you’ll feel more connected to the Body.

Thank you so much for spending hard time making this blog. I can feel Gods fire in your burning passion to share His wisdom through your life.

You are so kind. Thank you for the encouragment.

Please pray for me, I am very full of pride! It’s about to destroy me and my marriage. I have been a Christian a long time and should not be full of this. Thank you for your article.

I will pray for you. I know we all struggle with pride, but God is near the humble and contrite (literally, “crushed”) in spirit. The more I read God’s Word, like ROmans 5:6-10, the more it humbles me that God actually would die for “ungodly, wicked enemies” of Him! Wow. That’s amazing grace. Call your pastor or a trusted Christian woman in your church. There is nothing like another godly woman to mentor you as I have an elderly, retired pastor mentor me for 15 years. And he helped me greatly and I needed his advice to humble me.
