2 Things 2 Desire

Two things I ask, O God. Sometime before I die, grant these humble requests:
Eliminate any hint of worthless and deceitful words from my lips. Do not make me poor or rich, but give me each day what I need. For if I have too much, I might forget You are the One who provides, saying, “Who is the Eternal One?” Or if I do not have enough, I might become hungry and turn to stealing and thus dishonor the good name of my God (Proverbs 30:7-9).

Please give Your servant a listening heart for judging Your people and for knowing the difference between what is good and what is evil. Who is capable of judging Your chosen ones, a great people (1 Kings 3:9)?

Elisha: Please, I wish to receive a double portion of your spirit. As your successor, I want to have twice the portion of your power (2 Kings 2:9).

I am pleading with the Eternal for this one thing, my soul’s desire: To live with Him all of my days—in the shadow of His temple, behold His beauty and ponder His ways in the company of His people (Psalm 27:4).

    Lord, two things I ask of You before leaving this earth, (1) to fulfill Your purpose, and (2) to walk upright before that Your Name through me may be glorified throughout the earth, Amen.
