Proverbs 23 Godly Instructions


Heavenly Father,
We Know that you LORD are God. It is you who made us, and we are your people the sheep of your pasture; We will enter your gates with thanksgiving and your courts with praise; Lord you are good and your love endures forever; your faithfulness continues through all generations.  We will watch our words, and we will show mercy and love. Your daughters will forgive those who sin against us.  Thank you for your forgiveness over our transgressions and sins… We will not speak to a fool, because they will scorn the wisdom of our words. We will not move an ancient boundary stone or encroach on the fields of the fatherless, for their Defender is strong; he will take up their case against us. Your daughters will apply their heart to instruction and their ears to words of knowledge.  Your daughters will not withhold discipline from a child; if we punish our children with the rod, surely they will not die. Punish our children with the rod and save their soul from death.  Your daughters will train their children in the way that they should go according to your word of truth.  We thank you for your protection over our children, our spouses and our entire household.  Thank you for the gift of Christ that suffered the pain and shame for us.  Thank you for your daily pray…Amen!

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