Heavenly Father,
How awesome is your name upon all the earth… The heavens declare your greatness, the oceans cry out to you, the mountains bow down before you.  We join with the earth and sing our praise to you!  Thank you for the gift of salvation, for redeeming us from the pit of disparity.  May we love deeply and forgive quickly as you have done for us.  An unfriendly man pursues selfish ends; he defies all sound judgment. Father our desire is to love deeply and keep sound judgment by committing all things to you.  A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions. May your daughter speak healing words and not be so quick to offer opinions.  When wickedness comes, so does contempt, and with shame comes disgrace. Lord our prayer is that we would not be wicked or contemptuous toward others so that we do not shame or disgrace you.  Help us to speak a fountain of words that are wisdom so that it would like a bubbling brook and glorify you. May your daughter’s judge justly, love mercy and walk humbly before you.  Your word states; It is not good to be partial to the wicked or to deprive the innocent of justice.  May we not speak words of the foolish and bring strife instead we will speak words of life, because a fool’s lips bring them strife, and their mouth invites a beating. We thank you Father for the answer to our prayers.  We also thank you for keeping drawn close to you through Christ in us… We pray this in Jesus name…Amen!
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,
Jennifer Pettiford
