-Praying Thru Proverbs: 19: 1-14

by Dr. D ~ April 2nd, 2019

19 Better is a poor person who walks in his integrity
than one who is crooked in speech and is a fool.
2 Desire[a] without knowledge is not good,
and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.
3 When a man’s folly brings his way to ruin,
his heart rages against the Lord.
4 Wealth brings many new friends,
but a poor man is deserted by his friend.
5 A false witness will not go unpunished,
and he who breathes out lies will not escape.
6 Many seek the favor of a generous man,[b]
and everyone is a friend to a man who gives gifts.
7 All a poor man’s brothers hate him;
how much more do his friends go far from him!
He pursues them with words, but does not have them.[c]
8 Whoever gets sense loves his own soul;
he who keeps understanding will discover good.
9 A false witness will not go unpunished,
and he who breathes out lies will perish.
10 It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury,
much less for a slave to rule over princes.
11 Good sense makes one slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
12 A king’s wrath is like the growling of a lion,
but his favor is like dew on the grass.
13 A foolish son is ruin to his father,
and a wife’s quarreling is a continual dripping of rain.
14 House and wealth are inherited from fathers,
but a prudent wife is from the Lord. –ESV

Our Father,

Through the counsel of your Holy Spirit we seek to walk in integrity; we want all of our speech to reflect your Word and love. We seek your help in bringing all of our desires to reflect your counsel and the destiny you have for us.

We also seek to have your help in being patient and live within your time table rather than our expectations. We also seek to live with a heart of thanksgiving; with your help and inspiration we want to be generous to others and always be fair and truthful in all of our dealings.

It is your understanding and knowledge of all that is good that we seek in this life; we want to live by your word and teaching and in the process demonstrate to others how you have blessed our lives. Keep us from anger; help us to forgive and forget offenses against us.

Father, we seek blessed relationships in our lives; good friends, close family, and ever closer bonding with our spouses. It is only when you are in the midst of us that we can be fully blessed in this life and the life to come.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
