"Learn a simple prayer that will help you find your sweet spot in life."—Josh McDowell, author of More Than a Carpenter

"Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread."

Proverbs 30:8

This simple, unexpected request from a little-known biblical author named Agur is the only prayer in all of Proverbs, and it offers life-changing potential.

• escape imbalance
• overcome fear of failure and eliminate envy
• joyfully pursue your passions
• reap the eternal rewards of trusting God
• find your personal sweet spot
 
In our modern, busy lives, embracing balance leads us away from bad decision-making and the emotional cost of trying to do too much or survive with too little. 
 
This engaging and practical book faithfully unpacks Agur’s humble prayer. Read it in an evening. Affirm it for a lifetime. Share it with those you love.

Editorial Reviews

"In Proverbs 30, Agur invites you to pray a simple prayer that will help you find your sweet spot in life. Thanks to Jay Payleitner for uncovering and unpacking this marvelous gem. Don’t miss it."—Josh McDowell, international speaker, apologist, and author of More Than a Carpenter and Evidence That Demands a Verdict

"In a world that calls us to the extremes of overabundance or minimalism, The Prayer of Agur leads us to a life of rested contentedness. It is possible to find that God-ordained sweet spot, and Jay’s treatment of Agur’s prayer will show you how."—Jeff Vanderstelt, author of Gospel Fluency

"In his warm and familiar manner, Jay uses the Prayer of Agur to teach us the way to contentment. He genuinely addresses our push and pull against life’s extremes and defines the path to balance…as we lean into [God]. This book is and will be a pivotal point in our walk with Christ now and for years to come."—Mary Ethel Eckard, cofounder of Dragonfly Ministries and author of Lessons of a Dragonfly

"Every verse of God’s Word applies to our lives. But I must say, Agur’s brief prayer in Proverbs 30 seems to have special significance to this generation…we can live in God’s will and it’s a sweet place to be!"—Ken Blanchard, coauthor of Lead Like Jesus

"The Prayer of Agur made me realize the need for balance in my life in so many areas. A must-read."—Linda Wilson, guest coordinator for Real Life on Cornerstone Network

"In a culture that celebrates extremes, The Prayer of Agur is a clarion call back to the ’sweet spot of knowing Jesus.’ Jay reminds us that even at the time of Creation, God Himself knew when to stop."—Mark Hancock, CEO of Trail Life USA and author of Why Are We Sitting Here Until We Die?

"Discover through this delightful read that it really is possible to trust God to provide exactly what you need and to live in the sweet spot of His best for you."—Cindi McMenamin, author of When God Sees Your Tears 

"This book is at once poetically written and powerfully rich as it illuminates Agur’s motives and prayer, which accurately reflect our own hearts’ longings. Instead of wondering if I’ve identified God’s perfect will and agonizing over every decision, now I’m finding His sweet spot for my life!"—Caesar Kalinowski, author of The Gospel Primer

"Jay Payleitner and Agur are quite a team as together they examine the most important things in life, the fears that hold us back, and the possibility of a life joyfully lived in the discovery of a new perspective."—Phyllis Hendry Halverson, president and CEO of Lead Like Jesus

"While Bruce Wilkinson’s The Prayer of Jabez provides a plan for seeking blessings from God, the prayer referenced in Payleitner’s work is more concerned about personal humility and relationship with God, and is highly recommended for serious readers of the Proverbs."—Library Journal
