Oh God, you hate pride, arrogance, evil lifestyles and perversion (Prov. 8:13). You tell us that when pride comes, disgrace will follow, but with humility comes wisdom (Prov. 11:2). We are clearly warned that pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall (Prov. 1:18). Please keep our nation from falling any further from a vital relationship and dependence upon You. By Your power and might, You bring down rulers from their thrones but lift up the humble (Luke 1:52). You oppose the proud but gives more grace to the humble (James 4:6). Merciful God, we renounce our sinful pride and ask you to clothe our nation with compassion and humility. We humble ourselves under Your mighty hand, that You may lift us up in due time (1 Pet. 5:6). You are always trustworthy. Your timing is always right. Almighty King, display your hand of authority and victory!
