“You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask and then you ask and do not receive because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.”

James 4:2-3   

Hearer of prayer! Oh, guide aright
Each word and deed of mine;
Life’s battle teach me how to fight,
And be the victory Thine.
