A study of humility has lead me to consider the question: how to be humble? Spencer W. Kimball answers:
“How does one get humble? To me, one must constantly be reminded of his dependence. On whom dependent? On the Lord. How remind one’s self? By real, constant, worshipful, grateful prayer.” (Humility, Brigham Young University Speeches of the Year [Provo, 16 Jan. 1963], pp. 2–3.)
In 2 Chronicles 15:3-4, it reads:
Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.
But when they in their trouble did turn unto the Lord God of Israel, and sought him, he was found of them.
How is the armor of God maintained, Paul shares the key at the end of his analogy:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; (Ephesians 6:18)
Not directly related to the previous statements, but Isaiah points to Sabbath Day observance as a crucial ingredient in preparation for entrance into the temple. (See Isaiah 56:6-7)
