“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!
