Two things I ask of you, Lord;
do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much
and disown you and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonor the name of my God. - Proverbs 30:7-9
Dear Heavenly Father,
I cannot improve on this prayer from Agur. It elevates worship of you above all things and purifies my motives in prayer and in life. Help me to sincerely pray these same words.
Pastor Don Patterson
To want God more than anything else, now that's faith.
