God’s Word – As water reflects a face, so a man’s heart reflects the man. Proverbs 27:19

Proverbs 27 Heart – The Heart is wicked and deceitful…

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,

Hear, O LORD, and answer your daughters cry…Guard your daughter’s life, for we seek to be devoted to you. You are our God; save your servant who trusts in you.  We ask for your mercy on us, O Lord, for we call to you all day long.  Bring joy to your daughters, for to you, O Lord, we lift up our soul.  You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.  Thank you for the forgiveness of our transgressions and sins.  Thank you for your love and faithfulness through Christ.  We thank you for your protection over our lives, our spouses and our family.  We will seek your wisdom through your word of truth.  We will forgive as you Lord have forgiven us.  We will love one another deeply and repent quickly…Your word instructs us: Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are the eyes of man.  We lift up to you father our husbands; may they make a covenant with you Lord; “Let them make a covenant with their eyes not to look lustfully at a girl.”  May we make the very same covenant with you Father, that we would not look lustfully at any man. The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, your children are tested by the praise they receive.  Let are hearts be humble because your word declares; you oppose the proud but give grace to the humble.  Though we grind a fool in a mortar,
grinding him like grain with a pestle, we will not remove folly from them.  Your word informs us to be sure we know the condition of our flocks, to give careful attention to our herds; for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations.  We will watch our ways and commit all the works of our hands to you Father.  We will wait patiently for you Lord.  We will put our hope in your word.  We thank you for your word of truth that prepares us for every good work you have called us to.  We also thank you Father for your provision in abundance, in every area of our life.  We thank you for the answers to all our prayers.  We thank you for power of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit in us.  It is in Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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

The eyes of man are never satisfied
We are tested by the praise we receive
We can not remove folly from a fool
