Proverbs 22 Pay Attention – to the sayings of the wise…
Prayer:
Heavenly Father,
You give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in you LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Father our desire is to put our trust and hope in you and you along.  We thank you Father for your word that increases our strength and renews our youth… We thank you for your protection, your provision and your word of hope that prepares our heart, mind and spirit for every good work you call us to.  Thank you for the forgiveness of our transgressions and sins.  Let us not grow weary in doing good, in doing so we will reap a harvest of righteousness. Our desire is to follow your words, to forgive as you have forgiven us and to love one another deeply because love covers a multitude of wrongs.  We will seek your word and pay attention and listen to the sayings of the wise; We will apply our heart to what you teach, because  it is pleasing when we keep them in our heart and have all of them ready on our lips.  In this way our trust may be in you LORD, your word will teach us… Father you have thirty sayings for us, sayings of counsel and knowledge,   teaching your daughters true and reliable words, so that we can give sound answers … Thank you for your words of truth that are reliable and true… We will rejoice at the promise of your word that equips us for all that you have called us to in the name of Jesus.  We thank you for giving us the joy of salivation through Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection.  We thank you for the power of the Holy Spirit in us, which counsels and teaches through the word of truth the bible… It is in Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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