God’s Word -  Folly delights a man who lacks judgment, but a man of understanding keeps a straight course. Proverbs 15:21

Proverbs 15 – Understanding- brings God’s favor!

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,

You LORD are the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
You Lord will not grow tired or weary, and your understanding no one can fathom.   You give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak.  Thank you for increasing our power when we are weak…Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in you LORD will renew their strength. We will soar on wings like eagles; we will run and not grow weary, we will walk and not be faint. We thank you Father for your protection over our lives. We thank you for the great interceder Jesus Christ!  We thank you for the forgiveness of our transgressions and sins.  We will follow your instruction of your word. We will commit all our plans to you so that we may succeed.  We will forgive as you have forgiven us.  We will inscribe your word to the tablet of our hearts so that by them we will succeed through the entire counsel of your word.  Father your word instructs on [folly]: Folly delights a man who lacks judgment, but a man of understanding keeps a straight course.  We will stay on a straight course by meditating on your word not turning to the left or right, keeping our eyes straight ahead on Jesus the author and perfecter of our Faith.  Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.  We seek the counsel and advice of your teachers of your word… A man finds joy in giving an apt reply— and how good is a timely word!  Strengthen us through the power of your word to give an apt reply and a timely word.   The path of life leads upward for the wise to keep him from going down to the grave… Thank you Father for saving us from the grave and pouring in us the joy of your presence, through washing of your word and the Holy presence of Christ in our hearts… We will seek your strength and continually seek your face through the power of your word.  We will sing praises to you Lord, for all the magnificent things you do in and through us.  In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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