God’s Word – Counsel and sound judgment are mine; I have understanding and power. Proverbs 8:14

Proverbs 8 Counsel- God gives counsel and sound judgment through the power of Christ…


Heavenly Father,
You are good to your daughters, to those who are pure in heart.  You give counsel and sound judgment to us.  You have given us Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.  Great is your faithfulness and love enduring all things. Our feet had almost slipped; we had nearly lost our foothold. We had envied the arrogant we saw the prosperity of the wicked. They have no struggles;
their bodies are healthy and strong. They are free from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills. Protect us from evil; let our hearts not be drawn to what is evil.  Father we ask for your forgiveness, in our sins and our wickedness. We will forgive as you have forgiven us. We know Father that counsel and sound judgment are yours; You have understanding and power. By you kings reign and rulers make laws that are just; by you princes govern, and all nobles who rule on earth. Father you direct the king’s heart and move it like a water course.  You love those who love you, and those who seek you find you.   With you are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity. We thank you for your wisdom through your word.  Your word illuminates and brings us revelation to the issues of the heart.  Lord we thank you for the victories that you give.  We thank you for your provision in abundance.  We thank you for your mercy grace through the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.  It is in Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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