-Praying Thru Proverbs: 20: 16-30

by Dr. D ~ April 5th, 2019

16 Take a man’s garment when he has put up security for a stranger,
and hold it in pledge when he puts up security for foreigners.[d]
17 Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man,
but afterward his mouth will be full of gravel.
18 Plans are established by counsel;
by wise guidance wage war.
19 Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets;
therefore do not associate with a simple babbler.[e]
20 If one curses his father or his mother,
his lamp will be put out in utter darkness.
21 An inheritance gained hastily in the beginning
will not be blessed in the end.
22 Do not say, “I will repay evil”;
wait for the Lord, and he will deliver you.
23 Unequal weights are an abomination to the Lord,
and false scales are not good.
24 A man’s steps are from the Lord;
how then can man understand his way?
25 It is a snare to say rashly, “It is holy,”
and to reflect only after making vows.
26 A wise king winnows the wicked
and drives the wheel over them.
27 The spirit[f] of man is the lamp of the Lord,
searching all his innermost parts.
28 Steadfast love and faithfulness preserve the king,
and by steadfast love his throne is upheld.
29 The glory of young men is their strength,
but the splendor of old men is their gray hair.
30 Blows that wound cleanse away evil;
strokes make clean the innermost parts. –ESV

Our Father,

We ask that by your counsel that we would be far from deceit and offer only the truth in all of our conversations and dealings with others; we seek to only bless others and never be involved with giving or encouraging slander.

We want to have a heart that will not repay evil done to us; we trust in your help and just resolution always. Your Son taught us to pray for our enemies, please remind us of that teaching when we forget.

We want to be honest and fair in all of our dealings; direct us in all of our ways and forgive us when we depart and need your correction. Search our hearts O Lord and help us through your counsel to bring our steps in line with your teaching.

Thank you for your steadfast love and faithfulness to us; we glory in your strength and your caring for us. You have offered us an inheritance in this life and the eternal life to come through the sacrifice of your Son Jesus; we thank you now and for evermore for adopting us into your family because of our faith in your Son. Thank you Father and praise your name forever.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
