God’s Word  – …my inmost being will rejoice when your lips speak what is right. Proverbs 23:16

Proverbs 23 Speak Wisely
Heavenly Father,
We will give thanks to you LORD, for you are good; your love endures forever.  Your redeemed people will say of you LORD —
Yes, our God redeemed us from the hand of the enemy, you gathered us from the lands, from east and west, from north and south. We cried out to you LORD in our troubles, and you delivered us from our distress. Your daughters thank you for hearing our cries; we thank you for redeeming us from the pit. We love because your first loved us…We thank you for loving us so much that you Father gave us your one and only son Jesus Christ to die for our transgressions and sins.  We will love our neighbor as our self, repent quickly, and forgive mercifully.  We ask for your protection from evil one, help us not to be led away by temptation. Your word of truth teaches us; If our heart is wise, then your heart will be glad; your inmost being will rejoice when our lips speak what is right.  We will seek for wisdom and understanding; we will seek it like seeking for treasure.  Your daughters will not let their heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of you LORD. In doing so there is surely a future hope for each of your daughters and our hope will not be cut off.  We will listen … and be wise, and keep our heart on the right path.  We thank you for your word of truth, we will meditate on it day and night so that in the scriptures we will find hope, and our hope will not be cut off; We will be strong and courageous through your divine wisdom in the scriptures.  We thank you for all your provision.  We thank you for the victories you give through Jesus.  In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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