“Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.
3 Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and for ever.”
Having a humble heart is a necessity in trading. Looking at the market with greedy eyes can only lead to ruin. What will your winnings be used for? Will they be used to further God’s work in the world? Do you give thanks to God for your profits?
The following is a prayer of gratitude:
Thank you Lord for Your gift of money.
You give me insight to see the market
with unclouded eyes.
Your voice tells me when to enter a trade.
Your voice tells me when to exit a trade.
Your presence is like the morning dew
watering my soul.
