God’s Word – The woman Folly is loud;she is undisciplined and without knowledge. Proverbs 9:13

Proverbs 9 Folly- The woman who displays folly is loud…


Heavenly Father,

You are awesome in glory and in power.  Counsel and sound judgment are yours.  You tell the sun where to rise and where to set. You call out and the earth thunders.  You change the seasons and the times- the earth is filled with your unfailing love…In you, O LORD, your daughters have taken refuge;
let us never be put to shame. Rescue us and deliver us in your righteousness; turn your ear to us and save us. Be our rock of refuge,
to which we can always go; give the command to save your daughters, you are our rock and our fortress.  We ask that you deliver us from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of evil and cruel men.  You are our hope, O Sovereign LORD, our confidence since our youth. We ask for your forgiveness for our transgressions and sins.  Place a guard over the doors of our lips, so that we will speak edifying words to one another.  We will love deeply and forgive as you have forgiven us…  Your word instructs us the woman Folly is loud; she is undisciplined and without knowledge.  Lead us by your word and your spirit to live a disciplined life with knowledge.  “Let all who are simple come in here!”  She says to those who lack judgment.  Strengthen your daughters by your word truth not to lack judgment.  “Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is delicious!” But little do they know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depths of the grave.  Your daughters will seek counsel and sound judgment, good understanding that will lead to your favor.  May we forsake our wicked ways; repent quickly and love deeply.  Thank you for the victories you give through the power of Christ.  Thank you for the gift of Christ and the answer to our prayers.  Your daughters will guard their heart; it is the well spring of life.  It is in Jesus name we pray…Amen!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,

Love in Christ,

Jennifer Pettiford
