-Praying Thru Proverbs: 11: 1-15

by Dr. D ~ March 11th, 2019

11 A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
but a just weight is his delight.
2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with the humble is wisdom.
3 The integrity of the upright guides them,
but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.
4 Riches do not profit in the day of wrath,
but righteousness delivers from death.
5 The righteousness of the blameless keeps his way straight,
but the wicked falls by his own wickedness.
6 The righteousness of the upright delivers them,
but the treacherous are taken captive by their lust.
7 When the wicked dies, his hope will perish,
and the expectation of wealth[a] perishes too.
8 The righteous is delivered from trouble,
and the wicked walks into it instead.
9 With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor,
but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.
10 When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices,
and when the wicked perish there are shouts of gladness.
11 By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted,
but by the mouth of the wicked it is overthrown.
12 Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense,
but a man of understanding remains silent.
13 Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets,
but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.
14 Where there is no guidance, a people falls,
but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.
15 Whoever puts up security for a stranger will surely suffer harm,
but he who hates striking hands in pledge is secure. –ESV

Our Father,

Guides us in the ways of integrity and righteousness. Help us through the counsel of your Holy Spirit to avoid pride and live in humility before you.

In our relationships and in our business dealings; let us always treasure your teachings and avoid the ways of evil that include cheating scales and treacherous lies against others.

Let us always be numbered among the upright that help our neighbors rather than be among those who to try to get wealthy at the expense of others. Let us remember to never belittle our neighbors but be a helper that always lifts them up and is a blessing to all.

Let us always be known as among the trustworthy that respect and worship you that it might go well with us and our families. May we always be delivered from trouble and evil through your help and be among those called blessed in this life and in the life to come.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
