God’s Word – Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one’s friend springs from his earnest counsel. Proverbs 27:9

 

Prayer Proverbs 27* Friendship – A friend loves at all times…

Prayer:  

Heavenly Father,

We will shout for joy to you LORD, with all the earth.  We worship you LORD with gladness; come before you with joyful songs.  We know that the LORD is God.
It is you Lord who made us, and we are you people; we are your people, the sheep of your pasture.  Your daughters will enter your gates with thanksgiving you’re your courts with praise; we give thanks to you and praise your name. For you LORD are good and your love endures forever; your faithfulness continues through all generations. Your daughters thank you for love and forgiveness of our sins.  That we would forgive those that would sin against us with a pure heart.  We ask you to guide us in all we do, that we may honor you.  We will not boast about tomorrow, we do not know what a day may bring forth. We will let another praise us, and not our own mouth; someone else, and not our own lips. Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but provocation by a fool is heavier than both. We will not be burdened by the provoking of a fool. Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy? Father please give us the strength not to be envious of others.  Better is open rebuke than hidden love.  We will seek to love one another deeply because love covers a multitude of sins.  Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.  Our desire would be to build friendships on honest words and not on deceptive motives.  Our prayer continually is that the words of our mouth and meditation of our hearts be acceptable to you Lord, because you are our rock and our redeemer. We thank you for your protection over our families and homes… In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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