The apostle James declares that true faith produces authenticity.

James 1:2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials,  (NASB)

Personally, I make it a point never to pray for humility!  I also never pray for trials!  The fact is, I seem to encounter enough lessons in humility and experience no shortage of trials on a regular basis . . . without praying for more!!

"Temptations" is another word your Bible may have for "Trials".  The word James had in mind in this verse was trials, (i.e. the persecutions and afflictions we all face as Christ-followers.)  Although you may know in your heart "greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world", there is nothing quite like facing the daily trials of the Evil One and discovering the strength of God to be more than enough!
