“Remove far from me falsehood and lying; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me, lest I be full and deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?” or lest I be poor and steal and profane the name of my God.” Proverbs 30: 8-9
GOD, I am not asking for silver or gold;
Lest I become wealthy and forget your statutes and precepts.
Give me enough to share with those in need!
I am not asking for a supernatural intelligence;
I may be led to believe that I am above everyone;
I’m desperate for your wisdom to discern between right and wrong.
LORD, I am not asking to become a celebrity;
I may think that it’s my fame that works things.
Let the whole world know what You have done in me.
Dear GOD, I don’t want to be perfect;
I may boast.
I am craving for your humility, patience and guidance.
GOD, I am not asking that things go my way;
I may think that I am leading.
May your will be done every day.
Father GOD, I am not asking you to raise me above the world;
I may think that I rule.
Capture my heart and dwell in it richly!
“My son, if your heart is wise, my heart too will be glad. My inmost being will exult when your lips speak what is right. Let not your heart envy sinners, but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day. Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.” Proverbs 23: 15-18
