Prayers of Promise: The Joys of Community: Humility

You younger men. likewise. be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time. 
1 Peter 5:5-6 NASB
Reflect on this statement, inspired by today’s Scripture, and let it guide you into prayer:
I pray that my children will be honoring to those You have placed over them. I pray they will give honor to everyone, especially the elderly, and learn to know Your heart when You said, "I have not come to be served but to serve."

Prayer
God, I thank You for being my all-in-all, for being above all, and ruling over all that is in heaven and on earth. Thank You for those You place over my children, and thank You for using those individuals to help shape them, mold their character, conform them to Your image, and prepare them for the things You have planned for them.
I pray that my children will be honoring to those You have placed over them. I pray they will give honor to everyone, especially the elderly, and learn to know Your heart when You said, "I have not come to be served but to serve."
I pray that my children's hearts will never be filled with pride, puffed up, or prone to look down on others. May they be humble vessels who are aware of their needs, who are broken and contrite before You, and who realize, moment by moment, their total dependency upon Your grace.
I pray my children will give honor to everyone.
This was an excerpt from Prayers of Promise: God’s Life-Changing Promises to Pray Over Your Children by Roy Lessin— a book designed to guide you in prayer over your children.
