God’s Word – His malice may be concealed by deception, but his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly  Proverbs 26:26

Proverbs 26 Deceitful Words

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,

 Your daughters call to you; come quickly to us.  Hear our voice when we call to you. Let our prayer be set before you like incense; Let the lifting up of our hands be like the evening sacrifice.  Set a guard over our mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of our lips. Let not our heart be drawn to what is evil, or not take part in wicked deeds with those who are evildoers;  Deliver us through your unfailing love… Thank you for the forgiveness of our transgressions and sins.  Let us love one another deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.  Your daughters will forgive as you Lord have forgiven us.  Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart be acceptable; you are our rock and our redeemer.  Your word instructs us: The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man’s inmost parts. We will watch our words… Like a coating of glaze over earthenware  are fervent lips with an evil heart.  Your daughters will guard their heart for out it comes the issues of the life.   A malicious man disguises himself with his lips, but in his heart he harbors deceit.  We will not pour out lies against our neighbor, we will love our neighbor as our self, love does no harm to it’s neighbor.  Though his speech is charming, do not believe him, for seven abominations fill his heart.  We will use our wisdom and discernment; we will flee from evil.  His malice may be concealed by deception,  but his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly… Thank you Father for the many victories you give.  Thank you for the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.  May our words always be few, and your words be many.  We will wait on you Lord and in your word we will put our hope.  It is in Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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