Two things I ask of you, O LORD;
do not refuse me before I die:
8 Remove falsehood and lies far from me;
Give me neither poverty nor riches—
Feed me with the food allotted to me;
9 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.
A prayer that we all need to take to heart. He is basically asking God to let him live pay check to paycheck, that is so anti American. Goes against the grain of what so many churches preach today. I think even churches need to pray this payer regarding income lest they fall away in the same way, for get the Lord become the church of Ephesus in Revelation 2 leaving their first love, God.
I seek to take this verse to heart and pray it. How about you, will you?
