-Praying Thru Proverbs: 11: 16-31

by Dr. D ~ March 12th, 2019

16 A gracious woman gets honor,
and violent men get riches.
17 A man who is kind benefits himself,
but a cruel man hurts himself.
18 The wicked earns deceptive wages,
but one who sows righteousness gets a sure reward.
19 Whoever is steadfast in righteousness will live,
but he who pursues evil will die.
20 Those of crooked heart are an abomination to the Lord,
but those of blameless ways are his delight.
21 Be assured, an evil person will not go unpunished,
but the offspring of the righteous will be delivered.
22 Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout
is a beautiful woman without discretion.
23 The desire of the righteous ends only in good,
the expectation of the wicked in wrath.
24 One gives freely, yet grows all the richer;
another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
25 Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,
and one who waters will himself be watered.
26 The people curse him who holds back grain,
but a blessing is on the head of him who sells it.
27 Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor,[b]
but evil comes to him who searches for it.
28 Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,
but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.
29 Whoever troubles his own household will inherit the wind, a
and the fool will be servant to the wise of heart.
30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
and whoever captures souls is wise.
31 If the righteous is repaid on earth,
how much more the wicked and the sinner! –ESV

b.  Proverbs 11:27 Or acceptance


Our Fat her,

Teach us to be always gracious and kind to others. Guide us by your Holy Spirit to be steadfast in your righteousness; may our ways be blameless in your sight through our faith in your Son Jesus.

Deliver us O Lord from the machinations of the evil one; may we always search for the right and the good through your teachings and by the example of your Son.

May we always give freely to others in need; may we always be a blessing to others and may the fruit of righteousness that can only come through your Holy Spirit be a testimony of our faith and respect for your Word, Wisdom, and teaching.

May we always be a delight to you and may we always remember to be thankful for the blessings you give to us in this life and the inheritance that is before us in the life to come.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
