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
