-Praying Thru Proverbs: 12: 15-28

by Dr. D ~ March 14th, 2019

15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
but a wise man listens to advice.
16 The vexation of a fool is known at once,
but the prudent ignores an insult.
17 Whoever speaks[b] the truth gives honest evidence,
but a false witness utters deceit.
18 There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
19 Truthful lips endure forever,
but a lying tongue is but for a moment.
20 Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil,
but those who plan peace have joy.
21 No ill befalls the righteous,
but the wicked are filled with trouble.
22 Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,
but those who act faithfully are his delight.
23 A prudent man conceals knowledge,
but the heart of fools proclaims folly.
24 The hand of the diligent will rule,
while the slothful will be put to forced labor.
25 Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down,
but a good word makes him glad.
26 One who is righteous is a guide to his neighbor,[c]
but the way of the wicked leads them astray.
27 Whoever is slothful will not roast his game,
but the diligent man will get precious wealth.[d]
28 In the path of righteousness is life,
and in its pathway there is no death. –ESV

Our Father,

We seek your guidance so that we might do what is right in your eyes and not according to our own limited understanding. Let the truth always be the path we walk in and let it bring healing and blessing to us and all of our friends and families.

Teach us to be champions of peace and joy and in the process help us to control our anger and be prudent and loving in our responses to others. We seek to always be faithful to your teaching and wisdom that we might be a delight to you and others.

We seek to build up and never tear down; bringing a good word always to our neighbors. We seek your righteousness in this life and your promised blessings and abundance now and in the life to come.

We will always be thankful for your guidance and praise your name in this life and forever. By your Spirit we can do all things but by ourselves we can do nothing lasting, fruitful, or beneficial to ourselves or others.

In Jesus Name,  Amen.
