CB022040God’s Word – The righteousness of the blameless makes a straight way for them,        but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness. Proverbs 11:5

Proverbs 11

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,
God you are our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  We will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where you Lord the Most High dwell. You are within your daughters, they will not fall; You Lord will help us at break of day. You Lord are our mighty fortress.  We will seek you with all our heart, mind and strength.  We will be watch the words of our mouth and forgive those who sin against us just as you have forgiven us.  In thanksgiving we bring our request before you.  The righteous man is rescued from trouble, and it comes on the wicked instead.  Thank you Father for rescuing us from trouble, and bring it on to the wicked instead.  We desire not to be like the godless who destroys their neighbor, We will seek through your knowledge to escape.  Father help is to be leaders of integrity so though your righteousness we prosper, and the city will rejoice; not so with the wicked.  When the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy. Through obedience to your will, we will be remembered as a blessing, your word states: through the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is destroyed.  We will not be like the man who lacks judgment and so derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue.  Your daughter will not gossip and betray a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret. We will seek godly guidance, for lack of guidance a nation falls,
but many advisers bring victory.  We thank you Lord for the many victories you bring.  Thank you for your word of truth that allows us to bear fruit in all areas of our lives.  We will continue to submit, commit and delight in you and your Holy presence.   Your daughters rejoice in all your do!  Thank you for sustaining us through your love and mercy.  In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,
Jennifer Pettiford
