Two requests 

Do you have these requests of the Lord? 

“Two things I request of You (Deprive me not before I die): Remove falsehood and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches—feed me with the food allotted to me; lest I be full and deny You, and say, ‘Who is the LORD?’ Or lest I be poor and steal, and profane the name of my God” (Proverbs 30:7-9).

 
First, we neither want to believe falsehood and lies, nor do we want falsehood and lies said about us.
 
Second, we do not want to be poor or rich, because both carry temptations with them. 
Pray to the Lord just as the wisdom writer did.
