NLA031God’s Word – A man who remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy. Proverbs 29:1

Proverbs 29

We love you LORD, you are our strength. LORD  you are our rock, our fortress and our deliverer; yes,  the living God is our rock, in whom we take refuge.  You are our shield and the horn of salvation, our stronghold. We call to you LORD, who is worthy of all our praise, and we are saved from the hands of our enemies. May the words of our mouth and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable to you Lord, you are our rock and redeemer.  May your daughters repent from a pure heart, obey quickly and forgive as you have forgiven us.  Thank you for your forgiveness Father, thank you for the gift of Christ.  Father help us not to remain stiff-necked after many rebukes, so that we may not be destroyed – without remedy.   When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.  Lets us remain righteous through Christ, so that we may thrive.  Guide us to be a woman who loves wisdom and brings joy to her father, because a companion of prostitutes squanders their wealth. By justice a king gives a country stability, but one who is greedy for bribes tears it down. Your daughter will show justice, and obtain from greed through bribes.  Your daughters will not flatter her neighbor so she will not spread a net for her neighbor’s feet. We will not be like the evil person who is snared by their own sin, so that through Christ we are righteous before you so we can sing and be glad.  Thank you for your great mercy and grace that endures all things. Thank you for the answers to all our prayers. In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

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