He that is down needs fear no fall. He that is low, no pride; He that is humble, ever shall have God to be his Guide.

But because they at all times are not so wise, but that sometimes Satan may get that advantage of them, as to tempt them to pray for that which, if they had it, would neither prove to God's glory nor his people's good.
