God’s Word – For a man’s ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all his paths. Proverbs 5:21

Proverbs 5 Warnings against adultery

Prayer:

Heavenly Father;
We will praise you LORD all our life; we will sing praise to you our God as long as we live. We will not put our trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save. Your word teaches us: When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing. Blessed are your daughters whose help is their God, whose hope is in the LORD her God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them— You LORD, remain faithful forever. Thank you Father for your faithfulness.  You Father uphold the cause of the oppressed and give food to the hungry. Help to number our days aright so we may gain a heart of wisdom.  Let us love one another deeply and exalt others higher than our selves.  May we be willing and obedient to live according to your word.  Thank you for the forgiveness of our transgressions/sins.  We will forgive as your have forgiven us.  We will drink water from our own cistern, running water from our own well. If our springs overflow in the streets; our streams of water in the public squares?  Let them be ours alone, never to be shared with strangers.  Father let our fountain be blessed, and may we rejoice in the husband of our youth. May we forever be captivated by his love. Your word states: Why be captivated… by an adulterer? Why embrace … another woman’s husband?   For a woman’s ways are in full view of you LORD, and you Lord examine all her paths. We will hide your word in our heart so that we might not sin against you. Thank you for the gift of Christ who is the truth and the life. Thank you for your protection over our lives; our household and our families especially those whom do not believe. Thank you for the answers to our prayers put on your throne of grace. In Jesus’ name we pray…Amen!

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