God’s Word – If a king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will always be secure.  Proverbs 29:14

Proverbs 28 Justice; May Justice and Mercy follow us all the days of our life.

 

Prayer:
Heavenly Father,
How majestic is your name on all the earth!  We are in awe of all of your works.  You change the seasons and the time, you direct the king’s heart as a water course.  We love you Lord, we love you because you first loved us. Let the afflicted hear and rejoice in your revelations you give to illuminate their lives as they seek your word and put their trust in your word.  Thank you for your forgiveness of our transgressions and sins.  Let us love one another deeply because love covers a multitude of sins. Thank you for forgiving our sins. We will forgive Father as you have forgiven us.  We will seek to be willing and obedient, repent quickly and turn from our wicked ways.  We will act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before you.  Your word states; If a king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will always be secure. We thank you for directing the king’s heart in justice and mercy.  We will implement the rod of correction because it imparts wisdom, so that our children will not be left to their self and disgrace their mother.  Father let not the wicked thrive, because where there is wickedness there is sin, Let your righteous see their downfall.  We will follow your command and discipline our children, and they will give us peace; they will bring delight to our soul. Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; but blessed is he who keeps the law. Father we will seek your guidance through your word of truth, so that law and order will not disappear and we will see your blessing for obedience.  A servant cannot be corrected by mere words; though he understands, he will not respond. Your daughters will not make light of your discipline Lord, and we will not lose heart when you rebuke us, because you Lord discipline those you love, and you punish everyone you accept as a son and daughter.  We will not speak in haste; when we do so then, there is more hope for a fool than for one that speaks hastily.  Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart be acceptable in your sight, you are our rock and our redeemer.  We thank you for the word you sow in our hearts so that we would not sin against you. Thank you for your protection and our daily provision you provide in abundance.  Thank you for the power of the Holy Spirit and Christ in us.  It is in Jesus Precious name we pray…Amen!

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

The rod of correction imparts wisdom

Discipline your son, and he will give you peace;
… where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint
A servant cannot be corrected by mere words
