Bible Lesson: Answered Prayer: Agur Makes A Request In Prayer.

Bible Lesson: Answered Prayer: Agur Makes A Request In Prayer.

Subject Of Prayer: Agur Prays For Truth And Contentment, To Be In His Life.

Bible Text:

Proverbs 30:1-33 NLT The sayings of Agur son of Jakeh contain this message.
1 I am weary, O God; I am weary and worn out, O God.
2 I am too stupid to be human, and I lack common sense.
3 I have not mastered human wisdom, nor do I know The Holy One.
4 Who but God goes up to heaven and comes back down? Who holds the wind in His fists? Who wraps up the oceans in His cloak? Who has created the whole wide world? What is His name—and His Son’s name? Tell me if you know!
5 Every Word Of God proves true. He is a Shield to all who come to Him for protection.
6 Do not add to His words, or He may rebuke you and expose you as a liar.
7 O God, I beg two favors from you; let me have them before I die.
8 First, help me never to tell a lie. Second, give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs.
9 For if I grow rich, I may deny you and say, “Who is The Lord?” And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name.

Agur, a Hebrew who either gave or collected sayings of wisdom.
His prayer was twofold.

7 O God, I beg two favors from you; let me have them before I die.

8 First, help me never to tell a lie.

Second, give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs.

In these requests, are seen Agur's desire for 1) Truth, and 2) Contentment.

Proverbs 15:16 KJV
Better is little with the fear of The Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith.

Matthew 6:24-34 NLT
25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?
26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your Heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to Him than they are?
27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing,
29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.
30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’
32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your Heavenly Father already knows all your needs.
33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.
34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Philippians 4:11 KJV
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

I Timothy 6:6-8 KJV
6 But Godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

Hebrews 13:5 KJV
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Did The Lord answer Agur's prayer?

Psalm 84:11 KJV
For The Lord God is a sun and shield: The Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.

Romans 8:32 KJV
He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

James 1:17 KJV
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from The Father Of Lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
