Proverbs 12 –  The Ways of God Are Always BEST!

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,
You are awesome and glorious in your presence… Your wisdom is higher than the heavens.  You know all things, you purpose all things to work according to your ways… We thank you Father for the word of truth that came to life that is the Christ.  Thank you for your forgiveness toward our transgressions and sins. Let our desire be a heart of obedience toward you, to repent of our sinful and wicked ways, and also forgive those who sin against us.  Let us live according to your will, through power of Christ in us. Three things always remain, faith, hope and love yet the greatest of these is love.  Let us love one another deeply Father because love covers a multitudes of wrongs.  We are praised according to our wisdom, but those with warped minds are despised.  Your daughters will not behave according to those with warped minds that are despised.  Your word instructs us; It’s better to be a nobody and yet have a servant than pretend to be somebody and have no food.  Your daughters know that a righteous man cares for the needs of their animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.  We will watch our tongues and show mercy and kindness.  We be diligent and work our land so we will have abundant food, we will not give in to thought and chase fantasies so that we lack judgment.  Your daughters will not seek the desires as the wicked do, they desire the plunder of evil men. Instead we seek the root of the righteous and flourish.   An evil person is trapped by their sinful talk, we behave according your righteousness and escape trouble.   Your daughters will be filled with the fruit of her lips so that we are filled with good things, as surely as the work of her hands will reward them.  Thank you Father for your faithful love, your Faithful love endures all things.  We know that you are in control of all things that come together for good according to your purpose for those who love you.  Only to you Lord belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are yours. To you Father belong strength and victory; both the deceived and deceiver are yours.  What you tear down cannot be rebuilt; the man you imprison cannot be released.  If you Lord hold back the waters, there is drought; if you let them loose, they devastate the land.  Give us the strength, the discernment and the wisdom to accept that we cannot change a wicked mans deceitful ways and commit all things before you in prayer.  Thank you for the answer to our prayers; it is in Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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