And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Uncertainty

Father, if I receive any riches in this world, remind me not to be haughty or to set my hope on them, which are uncertain, but on you who richly provides me with all things for my enjoyment. Teach me self-control in everything so I may not receive a perishable crown, but an imperishable one. I do not wish to run uncertainly or box like one who hits only air. Instead, I wish to subdue my body and make it my slave, so that after preaching to others I myself will not be disqualified. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

I know there are times I struggle with self control.

Amen! This is one area that is easy to be swayed with what riches can bring. A great prayer in deed.
