-Praying Thru Proverbs: 21: 16-31

by Dr. D ~ April 9th, 2019

16 One who wanders from the way of good sense
will rest in the assembly of the dead.
17 Whoever loves pleasure will be a poor man;
he who loves wine and oil will not be rich.
18 The wicked is a ransom for the righteous,
and the traitor for the upright.
19 It is better to live in a desert land
than with a quarrelsome and fretful woman.
20 Precious treasure and oil are in a wise man’s dwelling,
but a foolish man devours it.
21 Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness
will find life, righteousness, and honor.
22 A wise man scales the city of the mighty
and brings down the stronghold in which they trust.
23 Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue
keeps himself out of trouble.
24 “Scoffer” is the name of the arrogant, haughty man
who acts with arrogant pride.
25 The desire of the sluggard kills him,
for his hands refuse to labor.
26 All day long he craves and craves,
but the righteous gives and does not hold back.
27 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination;
how much more when he brings it with evil intent.
28 A false witness will perish,
but the word of a man who hears will endure.
29 A wicked man puts on a bold face,
but the upright gives thought to[d] his ways.
30 No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel
can avail against the Lord.
31 The horse is made ready for the day of battle,
but the victory belongs to the Lord. –ESV

d.  Proverbs 21:29 Or establishes

 


Our Father,

With your help and counsel we seek your wisdom, righteousness, and honor; help us O Lord to avoid the paths of pleasure, arrogance, and pride. Teach us to be giving to others and seek your approval rather the fleeting fame and notoriety that this world can give.

Help us through your Holy Spirit to always seek and speak the truth; may false witness and deception be far from our lips and minds. We seek your wisdom and understanding not our own; no plan or anything or anyone opposed to you and your Son Jesus will win out in the end.

Father, you give us hope, blessings, and direction; without you and your Son Jesus we are nothing in this life nor in the life to come. Thank you Father for loving us and for giving us good counsel.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
