The prideful will never be able to take a knee and ask God for anything. They will do it on their own, even if it kills them. But humility, as good a virtue as it is, is not enough. Jesus didn’t say, ask and then sit around doing nothing, instead, He instructs us to “seek.” When I was a college student, I went to nursing homes twice a week to preach and visit with the residents.
