Give Me Not

Post  babylonsfalling on Sat 13 Nov 2010, 1:48 am

Give Me Not

Holy Father in Heaven
let me take no comfort in this world.
Give me each day my daily bread,
each night my nightly warmth,
but give me not the bread that would fill my brothers belly
nor the blanket that would warm his children.
Make me holy and grateful my Father
that I not covet the needs of another

Let me discern wisely
the needs of my life from the desires of my heart,
whether they be land, food, power or wealth
teach me to shun the excesses of the world,
for the sake of the hungry,
for the shelter of the homeless,
for the freedom of my spirit.

For you have taught me oh God
that the things of this world
are but a snare to the things of the spirit,
that the successes of the world
are but pitfalls in the path of redemption.
Save me then from the desires of my heart
that I may seek only the blood of my Savior

1 John 2:15-17

Truly this says so much, that we are never to stop being humble,
and never to be indifferent to the needs of our neighbors. This
is a keeper. Thank you! Blessings ~ Warrior

Thank you for joining CHRISTIAN TALK and God bless you for sharing an awesome prayer. Your prayer reminds me of Proverbs 30:7
Two things I ask of you,
O LORD;
do not refuse me before I
die;
Keep falsehood nd lies
far from;
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.
