-Praying Thru Proverbs: 15: 16-33

by Dr. D ~ March 22nd, 2019

16 Better is a little with the fear of the Lord
than great treasure and trouble with it.
17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is
than a fattened ox and hatred with it.
18 A hot-tempered man stirs up strife,
but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.
19 The way of a sluggard is like a hedge of thorns,
but the path of the upright is a level highway.
20 A wise son makes a glad father,
but a foolish man despises his mother.
21 Folly is a joy to him who lacks sense,
but a man of understanding walks straight ahead.
22 Without counsel plans fail,
but with many advisers they succeed.
23 To make an apt answer is a joy to a man,
and a word in season, how good it is!
24 The path of life leads upward for the prudent,
that he may turn away from Sheol beneath.
25 The Lord tears down the house of the proud
but maintains the widow’s boundaries.
26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord,
but gracious words are pure.
27 Whoever is greedy for unjust gain troubles his own household,
but he who hates bribes will live.
28 The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer,
but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.
29 The Lord is far from the wicked,
but he hears the prayer of the righteous.
30 The light of the eyes rejoices the heart,
and good news refreshes[c] the bones.
31 The ear that listens to life-giving reproof
will dwell among the wise.
32 Whoever ignores instruction despises himself,
but he who listens to reproof gains intelligence.
33 The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom,
and humility comes before honor.

Our Father,

Thank you for the love you have shown us in this life; for you have loved us before we loved you. You continue to love and counsel us in spite of the mistakes we make; in the process our respect and love for you and your Son also continues to increase.

Father, thank you for teaching us to be slow to anger and bless others instead, even those who come against us as enemies; may contention be far from us and peace always close by. May our path always be a level highway through your counsel and blessings.

Thank you for the wisdom and understanding you continue to give us; the abundant straight and upward path and blessings that we have inherited for being your children through faith in your Son Jesus.

Thank you for filling our thoughts and tongues with gracious words for others;  by your counsel and discipline you have kept us from jealousy and helped us to be humble and able to receive even greater blessings from you.

Thank you Lord for always hearing our prayers and for making us righteous in your sight through the sacrifice of your Son. We pray that you will continue to help us to always be open to your life-giving reproofs; We rejoice in your instruction and counsel.

Thank you Lord for honoring us and for teaching us to always be humble before you and joyful in receiving your valuable Word. Praise your name Lord; praise your name always.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
