God’s Word – The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.  Proverbs 12:15

Proverbs 12


Heavenly Father,
We shout for joy to you LORD, with all the earth.  We will worship you LORD with gladness; your daughters will come before you with joyful songs. We know that you LORD are God. It is you who made us, and we are yours; we are your people, the sheep of your pasture.  Yes, Father we enter your gates with thanksgiving and your courts with praise; we give thanks to you and praise your Holy name.  You Lord are good and your love endures forever;
your faithfulness continues through all generations… Thank you for your faithful love. Thank you for your mercy and grace upon us leading us from strength to strength and glory to glory through Christ.  We thank your for the forgiveness of our transgressions/sins strengthen us through the power of Christ and the power of your word so that we would not sin against you.  We will be faithful to show that love, mercy, grace and humble ourselves through forgiving those who would sin against us as your word instructs us to do.  From the fruit of our lips we are filled with good things as surely as the work of your hands rewards us. Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart be acceptable you are our rock and redeemer.  Thank you for showing us by your word of truth; The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise woman listens to advice.  We will seek counsel through your Holy Word the Bible.  A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent woman overlooks an insult.  Let us have self-control over our emotions and not display annoyance instead we will show prudence and overlook insults of man through the fruits of the spirit. Your daughters will be truthful witness and give honest testimony; we will not be like a false witness who tells lies.  We will not use reckless words because they pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.  Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment. Let us not speak with lying lips.  There is deceit in the hearts of those who plot evil, but joy for those who promote peace. Your daughters will promote peace, we will hold on to your promise that; No harm befalls the righteous, but the wicked have their fill of trouble.  Thank you for the word of truth that you have bound on the tablets of our hearts.  Thank you for your love, provision and protection over our lives and households and families; you LORD are good and his love endures forever; your faithfulness continues through all generations.  In Jesus name we pray…Amen!
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,
Jennifer Pettiford
