-Praying Thru Proverbs: 22: 1-16

by Dr. D ~ April 10th, 2019

22 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
and favor is better than silver or gold.
2 The rich and the poor meet together;
the Lord is the Maker of them all.
3 The prudent sees danger and hides himself,
but the simple go on and suffer for it.
4 The reward for humility and fear of the Lord
is riches and honor and life.[a]
5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the crooked;
whoever guards his soul will keep far from them.
6 Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
7 The rich rules over the poor,
and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
8 Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity,
and the rod of his fury will fail.
9 Whoever has a bountiful[b] eye will be blessed,
for he shares his bread with the poor.
10 Drive out a scoffer, and strife will go out,
and quarreling and abuse will cease.
11 He who loves purity of heart,
and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend.
12 The eyes of the Lord keep watch over knowledge,
but he overthrows the words of the traitor.
13 The sluggard says, “There is a lion outside!
I shall be killed in the streets!”
14 The mouth of forbidden[c] women is a deep pit;
he with whom the Lord is angry will fall into it.
15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child,
but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.
16 Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth,
or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty. –ESV

Our Father,

You are our maker and the creator of all things; without you we really have no name to speak of. It is only through faith in your Son Jesus that we have an identity as part of your family for now and forever.

It is only through humility and by our fear and respect for you that we have honor and have been blessed with hope and an abundant life. Through your counsel  O Lord, help us to stay on the road of the righteous and far away from the crooked paths of evil.

Help us O Lord, to teach and train up our children and grandchildren in your wisdom and loving ways; let us ever be good examples of your justice and righteousness to all. We need your help to maintain a purity of heart with speech and actions full of graciousness; help us to keep strife, quarreling, and abuse far from us and our families. 

Thank you for your loving help Father and praise your name forever.

In Jesus Name , Amen.
