121 Days of Prayer

The purposes of this prayer are: Humility, Holiness/Righteousness and Wisdom.

Omniscient God, we must strive to adopt an attitude of humility and righteousness as we keep our feet on the narrow path that leads to salvation. These goals are expressed in Proverbs: “Who can say, ‘I have made my heart clean; I am pure from sin’?” and “Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life and honor,” and also, “The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.” Proverbs 20:9, 21:22, and 22:4 (NRSV). Lord, not one of us can say that we have made our hearts clean and are pure from sin. Paul told the Romans that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 (NRSV). Father, we are all sinners. Our only hope of salvation is to repent of our sins, turn to our Savior, Jesus, and to pray for forgiveness. Please forgive us, Lord. We ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
