Only what I need.

For today, please don't give me excess money.
For today, please don't give me huge bouquets.
For today, please don't give me ample opportunity.
For today, please don't give me abundant knowledge.
For today, help me be content with the basics.
For today, help me rest in my lack of knowing.
For today, help me find beauty in the simplicity.
For today, help me trust.



For today, give me only what I need.

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 30:8-9
