-Praying Thru Proverbs: 20: 1-15

by Dr. D ~ April 4th, 2019

20 Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler,
and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.[a]
2 The terror of a king is like the growling of a lion;
whoever provokes him to anger forfeits his life.
3 It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife,
but every fool will be quarreling.
4 The sluggard does not plow in the autumn;
he will seek at harvest and have nothing.
5 The purpose in a man’s heart is like deep water,
but a man of understanding will draw it out.
6 Many a man proclaims his own steadfast love,
but a faithful man who can find?
7 The righteous who walks in his integrity—
blessed are his children after him!
8 A king who sits on the throne of judgment
winnows all evil with his eyes.
9 Who can say, “I have made my heart pure;
I am clean from my sin”?
10 Unequal[b] weights and unequal measures
are both alike an abomination to the Lord.
11 Even a child makes himself known by his acts,
by whether his conduct is pure and upright.[c]
12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye,
the Lord has made them both.
13 Love not sleep, lest you come to poverty;
open your eyes, and you will have plenty of bread.
14 “Bad, bad,” says the buyer,
but when he goes away, then he boasts.
15 There is gold and abundance of costly stones,
but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.  –ESV

Our Father,

We thank you for your wise counsel in dealing properly with alcohol; your instruction in avoiding addictions which would enslave us. By your Son Jesus you have set us free from all of the things that the enemy uses to ruin our lives.

We thank you for keeping us from strife; for the patience that you have given us that helps us to stay away from quarrels. We also thank you for the direction you give us that keeps from being slothful and blessings you give us for being helpful to others.

We thank you for the water of your Holy Spirit that gives us direction and purpose to draw upon in this life. We are also thankful for your steadfast love which you bless us with and for inspiring us to extend your love to others.

We thank you Father for the integrity that you have counseled us to have; for the blessings in this life and the life to come for responding to your instruction. We thank you for making our hearts pure and for cleansing us from sin through the sacrifice of you Son Jesus on the cross; it is his righteousness we get to borrow that gives us the eternal life we do not deserve.

Thank you for giving us eyes to read and ears to hear your teaching and Word; that we might receive the blessings that come with the knowledge of the truth which is greater than the most precious jewel.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
