-Praying Thru Proverbs: 10: 1-17

by Dr. D ~ March 7th, 2019

10 The proverbs of Solomon.

A wise son makes a glad father,
but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother.
2 Treasures gained by wickedness do not profit,
but righteousness delivers from death.
3 The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry,
but he thwarts the craving of the wicked.
4 A slack hand causes poverty,
but the hand of the diligent makes rich.
5 He who gathers in summer is a prudent son,
but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who brings shame.
6 Blessings are on the head of the righteous,
but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.[a]
7 The memory of the righteous is a blessing,
but the name of the wicked will rot.
8 The wise of heart will receive commandments,
but a babbling fool will come to ruin.
9 Whoever walks in integrity walks securely,
but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.
10 Whoever winks the eye causes trouble,
and a babbling fool will come to ruin.
11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life,
but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
12 Hatred stirs up strife,
but love covers all offenses.
13 On the lips of him who has understanding, wisdom is found,
but a rod is for the back of him who lacks sense.
14 The wise lay up knowledge,
but the mouth of a fool brings ruin near.
15 A rich man’s wealth is his strong city;
the poverty of the poor is their ruin.
16 The wage of the righteous leads to life,
the gain of the wicked to sin.
17 Whoever heeds instruction is on the path to life,
but he who rejects reproof leads others astray. –ESV

Proverbs 10:6 Or but violence covers the mouth of the wicked; also verse 11

 


Our Father,

We pray that you would help us to become wise by the counsel of your Holy Spirit so that we might bring gladness to your heart and so that your peace and joy might dwell in ours. We want to demonstrate our love and worship for you by following your teaching and ways in all that we do.

You have promised believers, through the teaching of your Son Jesus, that if we seek your Kingdom and put it first in our lives than you will bless us with everything that we need in this life and in the eternal life to come.

We receive your commandments and ask for your counsel daily to avoid the paths and traps of the evil one. We want to always walk in truth and integrity and be secure in your love. We want to be a fountain of righteousness to others demonstrating your love always; not the lies and violent ways of the enemy.  We want only wisdom, understanding, and love to flow out of our lips and never deception or hurt.

Let us always walk down your path of life and may we always receive your counsel and discipline gladly whenever we go astray.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
