Revival Prayer Guide (Humility)

A primary aspect in preparing for revival is giving attention to our level of humility.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land..- (2 Chronicles 7:14)

The few paragraphs below could be used as a prayer guide to lead us into deeper humility. There’s enough here to keep us praying till Jesus returns!

Dying to Self

When I am forgotten, or neglected, or purposely set at naught, and I don’t sting or hurt with the insult or the oversight, but my heart is happy, being counted worthy to suffer for Christ, that is dying to self!

When my good is evil spoken of, when my wishes are crossed, my advice disregarded, my opinions ridiculed, and I refuse to let anger rise in my heart, or even defend myself, but take it all in silence, that is dying to self!

When I lovingly and patiently bear any disorder, any irregularity, any tardiness, or any annoyance; when I can stand face to face with waste, folly, extravagance, spiritual insensibility and endure it as Jesus endured it, that is dying to self!

When I am content with any food, any offering, any clothing, any climate, any culture, any solitude, any interruption by the will of God, that is dying to self!

When I never care to refer to myself in conversation, or to record my own good works, or itch after commendation, when I truly love to be unknown, that is dying to self!

When I can see my brother prosper and have his needs met, and can honestly rejoice with him in spirit and feel no envy nor question God, while my own needs are far greater and in desperate circumstances, that is dying to self!

When I can receive correction and reproof from one of less stature than myself or younger than myself, and can humbly submit inwardly as well as outwardly, finding no rebellion or resentment rising up within my heart, that is dying to self!

Am I dead yet?
