-Praying Thru Proverbs: 18: 13-24

by Dr. D ~ April 1st, 2019

13 If one gives an answer before he hears,
it is his folly and shame.
14 A man’s spirit will endure sickness,
but a crushed spirit who can bear?
15 An intelligent heart acquires knowledge,
and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
16 A man’s gift makes room for him
and brings him before the great.
17 The one who states his case first seems right,
until the other comes and examines him.
18 The lot puts an end to quarrels
and decides between powerful contenders.
19 A brother offended is more unyielding than a strong city,
and quarreling is like the bars of a castle.
20 From the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach is satisfied;
he is satisfied by the yield of his lips.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
and those who love it will eat its fruits.
22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing
and obtains favor from the Lord.
23 The poor use entreaties,
but the rich answer roughly.
24 A man of many companions may come to ruin,
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. –ESV

 


Our Father,

Help us to be respectful of others and listen before we actually respond; we seek knowledge and understanding and without listening to you and others we cannot grow. May you help us to expand our talents without becoming arrogant; by your counsel help us to always be humble before everyone so that we might receive your blessings. 

Help us O Lord to be discerning; the stories and arguments presented before us all seem to have merit. Help us to subject everything to your word and teaching that the truth might always be before as our guide.

Help us to avoid quarrels and offensive discourse: let our responses be full of understanding and love. Let us never be haughty but tender in all of our relationships;  let apologies naturally flow from us when we have misspoken and brought hurt to others. Let us always speak life into others and be the source of edification rather than disruption and disagreement.

We want to be a good friend of yours and your Son Jesus; that we might always be blessed in this life and the life to come and spread your love and blessings to all we come in contact with daily. 

In Jesus Name, Amen.
