Proverbs 14  Seek The Ways of The Wise:
Heavenly Father,

We have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Your love is better than life, our lips will glorify you.   We will praise you as long as we live, and in your name we will lift up our hands. Your Daughter’s soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips her mouth will praise you.  We thank you for hearing us when we call, place a guard over the door of our lips so that we would not be drawn to the wicked or evil man.  Let us show forgiveness, mercy and grace toward those who sin against us.  Give us the wisdom and discernment so that your daughters will stay away from a foolish man, we will not find knowledge on their lips. We will seek to live in wisdom like the prudent and give thought to their ways, because the folly of fools is deception.  Fools mock at making amends for sin, we desire to live in the ways of goodwill that is found among the upright.  We will submit any bitterness due to un-forgiveness and look to your presence that is fullness of joy.  We read in your word; each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy. The house of the wicked will be destroyed, but the tent of the upright will flourish. Thank you Father, for allowing us to flourish only through your righteousness.  We will submit, delight and trust in you Lord through committing  all our plans to you so that they can succeed.  Your daughter will not act in a way that seems right to her, so that in the end it will lead to death. Even in laughter the heart may ache, and joy may end in grief.  We cling to your promise, we will not grieve; the joy of you Lord will be our strength.  The faithless will be fully repaid for their ways, and the good man rewarded for his. Thank you Father because your word instructs us that you are the defender of our faith you reward those who earnestly seek you. Thank you for keeping us drawn under the shadow of your wings.  Thank you for the continual victories you bring into each of our lives, our families and households.   In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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