From the Bible:
Be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
Dear Father-Mother God, I plead,
As did the king so long ago,
For wisdom, richest gift of Love,
That I the right may always know.
An understanding heart I crave,
And my desire is known to Thee.
“Desire is prayer.”* In faith I come;
And Thou wilt give this gift to me.
