God’s Word – Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you. Proverbs 20:22

Proverbs 20 Forgiveness: brings deliverance!


Heavenly Father,

We will praise you, O LORD, with all our heart; we will tell of all your wonders.  Your daughters will be glad and rejoice in you; we will sing praise to your name, O Most High. Our enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you.  Father you have upheld our rights and our cause; you have sat on your throne, judging righteously. We ask for you forgiveness for our transgressions and sins.  We will judge justly, love mercy and walk humbly before you.  We will repent quickly and forgive those who sin against us as you have forgiven us.  We ask that you would bless them and show them your mercy.   We will not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!”  Your daughters will wait for you LORD, and you will deliver us.   Your word tells us that you LORD detests differing weights, and dishonest scales do not please you.  We will not use differing weights or dishonest scales.  Our steps are directed by you LORD. How then can we understand our own way?  Your word teaches us: It is a trap for a man to dedicate something rashly and only later to consider his vows.  We will commit all our plans to you Father and they will succeed.  Thank you for the gift of Christ!  Thank you for your unfailing love that endures all things.  We will meditate on your word so that we will not sin against you.   Thank you Lord for the answers to all our prayers.  It is in Jesus name we pray…Amen!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,

Love in Christ,

Jennifer Pettiford
