A Prayer for Might against Greed

leaves of fall

Displaying the treasures of Your work,
Jesus, You invited me to follow You,
To sell my goods, to give to the poor,
And to completely submit Myself to You.
Desires for wealth lead to greed,
Satisfaction never being reached.
He who seeks no earthly possessions
Is free of all avaricious aspirations.
Jesus, edify my weak human nature,
To resist unnecessary commodities,
Those classified as evident luxury.
May I subdue all greedy tendencies!
