God’s Word –  Stop listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge.

Proverbs 19 Knowledge through godly wisdom

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,

How majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.  When we think about all your wondrous works, they are too numerous to count.  We thank you for the glory and majesty you display in your presence each day of our lives.  We desire to follow your commands and live in obedience to your word of truth.  We thank you for the forgiveness of our transgressions and sins.  We desire to love deeply and forgive as you have forgiven us.  Father protect us from evil and let us not be drawn to those things that are evil and wicked in your sight.  Your word teaches: Stop listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge.   Father will hide your word in my heart that we might not sin against you. A corrupt witness mocks at justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.  We will forsake our wicked and evil ways and keep corrupt talk from our lips.  Penalties are prepared for mockers, and beatings for the backs of fools.  We do not want to behave like the ruthless who will vanish, let us not do as the mockers who will disappear, nor act in evilness because all who have an eye for evil will be cut down- We will rejoice in the strength you give us through you flawless word of truth.  We thank you for the gift of Jesus interceding for us on your throne grace.  Thank you for your daily provision, and your protection for our lives, our families and our entire household.  In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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