Petition 3.23 | NIV
must pray for the graces of contentment and patience, and a holy indifference to all the things of sense and time.
Lord, teach me to be content whatever the circumstances; let me know what it is to be in need and what it is to have plenty; let me be content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Philippians 4:11-12(NIV) And let godliness with contentment be great gain to me, 1 Timothy 6:6(NIV) and a little with the fear of the LORD and quietness, be better than great wealth with turmoil. Proverbs 15:16(NIV)
Lord, give me grace to mourn as though I did not, to be happy as if I was not, to buy something as if it were not mine to keep, and to use the things in the world as if not engrossed in them, because the time is short and this world in its present form is passing away. 1 Corinthians 7:29-31(NIV)
