God’s Word – As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17

 Proverbs  27 Encouragement  – …encourage one another daily -

Prayer,

  Heavenly Father;

You our LORD Almighty are with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Your daughters will go and see the works, the desolations you have brought on the earth.  You make wars cease to the ends of the earth; you break the bow and shatter the spear, you burn the shields with fire.  Your daughters will be still, and know that you are God; you Lord will be exalted among the nations, you Lord will be exalted in the earth.”  You LORD Almighty are with us; our soul will boast in you LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. We will exalt your name.  We will repent quickly, love mercy and forgive as you have forgiven us.  Let us be women that seek to be the godly wife that is a woman of noble character.  Your word teaches; A quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping on a rainy day; restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand.  We will seek your word of truth for those characteristics to be a wife of noble character instead of being argumentative, and or disrespectful.  As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.  We will encourage one another daily, especially our spouses, because of sin’s deceitfulness.  Those who tend a fig tree will eat its fruit, and he who looks after his master will be honored.  We will work not unto man but work hard as working unto you Lord.  As water reflects a face, so a man’s heart reflects the man. We will guard our hearts, because it is the well spring of life.  We will watch our thought life; Jesus states that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.  Your daughter will keep watch over her heart and words.  Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are the eyes of man.  Father keep our eyes from every vile and wicked thing.  The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but man is tested by the praise he receives.  Let not our hearts be drawn to what is evil in your sight, let us not boast about tomorrow because we do not what a day will bring.  Thank you for your love and faithfulness, thank you for the gift of salvation through Christ.  Please protect us from the wiles of the enemy.  Thank you for your daily provision and abundance in all areas of our life.  It is in Jesus name we pray…Amen!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,

Love in Christ,

Jennifer Pettiford
