Be humble, talk little, think and pray much.

From 2 Chronicles 7:14:  “If My people who are called by My name humble themselves, pray, seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

George Whitefield (1714-1770) was an English-born pastor and Christian evangelist.  He spent the second half of his life in the American colonies.

My worth to God in public is what I am in private.  Is my master ambition to please Him and be acceptable to Him, or is it something less, no matter how humble.

From 2 Corinthians 5:6-9:  “So we are always confident, even though we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord—for we walk by faith, not by sight.  Yes, we do have confidence, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.  So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to be pleasing to Him.

He who becomes a brother to the bruised, a doctor to the despairing, and a comforter to the crushed may not actually say much.  What he has to offer is often beyond the power of speech to convey.  But, the weary sense it, and it is a balm of Gilead to their souls.

From 1 Peter 3:8:  “Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind.”

Prayer’s Focus

From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “Jesus teaches what to focus on in our prayers and encourages us to approach God with a humble heart.”

Praying with humble heart

Focusing on God

His name, kingdom, and will

Comforting, His rod

 

Lauding His Holiness

Kneeling at Lord’s feet

“Hallowed be your name” rings

Praying on His beat

 

Praying in reverence

Submitting to God

“Your kingdom come” proclaims

Lifting sin’s facade

 

Knowing God’s way is best

Trusting faithfulness

“Your will be done” shares grace

Praying, God shall bless

From Matthew 6:9-10:  “Pray then in this way:  Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.  Your kingdom come.  Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
