Lord, I come to You today through the holy, blameless name of Jesus. Thank you for the information in Your Word about what pride is and the devastating effect it can have on a person. “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fallProverbs 16:18.
Direct me to always be aware of ​my tendency to take credit for the many things You do for me. I know that nothing good can come from a prideful heart and attitude. Due to the fact that pride is involved in most sin, I ask You to apply Psalm 139:23-24 to me to ​destroy the roots of ​my sin. Give me the courage to  ask for the forgiveness and cleansing that is needed. “Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Direct me to be constantly aware of the worldly idea of self reliance​, and keep me from it. Instead, keep me leaning on You.
Show me how to make the message of the following song a reality in my life:
Leaning on the Everlasting Arms
by Elisha Hoffman
What a fellowship, what a joy divine, leaning on the everlasting arms;
What a blessedness, what a peace of mind leaning on the everlasting arms.
O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, leaning on the everlasting arms.
O how bright the path grows from day to day, leaning on the everlasting arms.
What have I to dread, what have I to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms?
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, leaning on the everlasting arms.
Thank you for allowing me to bring this prayer in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
