God’s Word – He who heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray. Proverbs 10:17

Proverbs 10 Wisdom is Life

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,
Your daughters will praise you, O LORD, with all our heart; we will tell of all your wonders. we will be glad and rejoice in your Holy name; we will sing praise to your name, O Most High.  Our enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you. For you have upheld our right and our cause;
you have sat on your throne, judging righteously. Father we thank you for your righteousness…You LORD reign forever; you have established your throne for judgment. You Lord will judge the world in righteousness; you will govern the peoples with justice. Father we thank you for providing Christ to die for us; thank you forgiving us. Let love and faithfulness never leave us bind them on the tablet of our heart so that we may show justice, mercy and love through humility.  Let us forgive others as you have forgiven us… You LORD are a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those saints in the body of Christ who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. We will be wise women that store up knowledge; your word teaches us the mouth of a fool invites ruin.  Let us not fall prey to the behaviors and characteristics of the fool.  The wealth of the rich is their fortified city, but poverty is the ruin of the poor. Give us our daily bread Lord, keep falsehood and lies far from your daughters; give us neither poverty nor riches, we thank you for your provision in all areas of our lives.  The wages of the righteous bring them life, but the income of the wicked brings them punishment.   Help us by your Holy Spirit to remain strong and obedient in order that we may live according to your commands stored up within our hearts.  You word instructs us; those who heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.  We will hide your Holy Word the Bible in our hearts, so that we would not sin against you.  We will confess our sins so that we may be healed, as it is written: Those who conceal their hatred have lying lips, and whoever spreads slander is a fool.  The tongue of the wise brings healing, we will use wise words and healing words; we will not pour out lies, the lying tongue hates those whom it lies to.  We will watch our words when we speak,  we know when words are many, sin is not absent,  we will be like those who hold their tongue and display wisdom. The tongue of the righteous is choice silver, but the heart of the wicked is of little value.  Thank you for your word of truth that fills us to overflowing through your faithful love. Thank you for your protection over us, our household and our family.  May the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart be acceptable you are our rock and redeemer.  In Christ name we pray…Amen!

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