God’s Word – Blessed is the man who always fears the LORD, but he who hardens his heart falls into trouble. Proverbs 28:14
 
Proverbs 28 Blessings for those who always fears the LORD…

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,

Your daughter will praise you, LORD! You saved your daughters from the grave and kept our enemies from celebrating our death.  We prayed to you, LORD our God, and you healed us, saving us from death and the grave. Your faithful people, LORD, will praise you with songs of rememberance and honor your holy name. Your anger lasts a moment, but your favor lasts for a lifetime. Weeping may last for a night but joy comes in the morning.  We thank you for your word of truth that you continually engrave on our hearts. We thank you for hearing our cries for help and you saved us from all our troubles.  Thank you for the gift of salvation through Christ.  May we do what is required of us to do act justly, love mercy and walk humbly before you Lord.  Your Word instructs us a tyrannical ruler lacks judgment, but whoever hates ill-gotten gain will enjoy a long life.  Your righteous people hate ill-gotten gain. We will not work with dishonest weights and measures.   A man tormented by the guilt of murder will be a fugitive till death; let no one support him.  We will not support a murderer that is a fugitive on the run.  The righteous whose walk is blameless is kept safe, but he whose ways are perverse will suddenly fall.  Please keep us safe and from seeking ways that are perverse.  We will work in diligence, your word teaches: He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.  A faithful man will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished. We will seek you and seek for your strength in all that we do!  We thank you for the truths that give us the freedom in Christ to abide in you, because without you Lord we can do no good thing.  We thank you for the answers to our prayers, and guiding our hearts and minds by the power of your love and the Holy Spirit in us.  It is in Jesus name we pray…Amen!
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,
Jennifer Pettiford
