-Praying Thru Proverbs: 23: 1-18

by Dr. D ~ April 12th, 2019

23 When you sit down to eat with a ruler,
observe carefully what[a] is before you,
2 and put a knife to your throat
if you are given to appetite.
3 Do not desire his delicacies,
for they are deceptive food.
4 Do not toil to acquire wealth;
be discerning enough to desist.
5 When your eyes light on it, it is gone,
for suddenly it sprouts wings,
flying like an eagle toward heaven.
6 Do not eat the bread of a man who is stingy;[b]
do not desire his delicacies,
7 for he is like one who is inwardly calculating.[c]
“Eat and drink!” he says to you,
but his heart is not with you.
8 You will vomit up the morsels that you have eaten,
and waste your pleasant words.
9 Do not speak in the hearing of a fool,
for he will despise the good sense of your words.
10 Do not move an ancient landmark
or enter the fields of the fatherless,
11 for their Redeemer is strong;
he will plead their cause against you.
12 Apply your heart to instruction
and your ear to words of knowledge.
13 Do not withhold discipline from a child;
if you strike him with a rod, he will not die.
14 If you strike him with the rod,
you will save his soul from Sheol.
15 My son, if your heart is wise,
my heart too will be glad.
16 My inmost being[d] will exult
when your lips speak what is right.
17 Let not your heart envy sinners,
but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day.
18 Surely there is a future,
and your hope will not be cut off.  –ESV

Our Father,

Thank you for providing us with an abundant life; we do not seek anything that you do not lead us toward. You have put our hearts and attention upon Spiritual things; we seek to apply our hearts and minds to your instruction and our ears to your Words of knowledge.

Thank you O Lord for helping us to instruct our children and grandchildren in your ways; Like you discipline us through your loving care, so also do we discipline the next generation and train them up in your righteous ways.

Thank you Father for instilling in our innermost being a respect for your teaching and righteousness; by your counsel and inspiration we continue all day long to walk in your path that your light up before us and avoid the paths of sinners.

Thank you Father for giving us blessings in this life and hope in the life to come through faith in your Son.. Thank you Father and praise your name forever.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
