-Praying Thru Proverbs: 23: 19-35

by Dr. D ~ April 15th, 2019

19 Hear, my son, and be wise,
and direct your heart in the way.
20 Be not among drunkards[e]
or among gluttonous eaters of meat,
21 for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty,
and slumber will clothe them with rags.

22 Listen to your father who gave you life,
and do not despise your mother when she is old.
23 Buy truth, and do not sell it;
buy wisdom, instruction, and understanding.
24 The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice;
he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him.
25 Let your father and mother be glad;
let her who bore you rejoice.

26 My son, give me your heart,
and let your eyes observe[f] my ways.
27 For a prostitute is a deep pit;
an adulteress[g] is a narrow well.
28 She lies in wait like a robber
and increases the traitors among mankind.

29 Who has woe? Who has sorrow?
Who has strife? Who has complaining?
Who has wounds without cause?
Who has redness of eyes?
30 Those who tarry long over wine;
those who go to try mixed wine.
31 Do not look at wine when it is red,
when it sparkles in the cup
and goes down smoothly.
32 In the end it bites like a serpent
and stings like an adder.
33 Your eyes will see strange things,
and your heart utter perverse things.
34 You will be like one who lies down in the midst of the sea,
like one who lies on the top of a mast.[h]
35 “They struck me,” you will say,[i] “but I was not hurt;
they beat me, but I did not feel it.
When shall I awake?
I must have another drink.” –ESV

Our Father,

Thank you for changing our hearts to seek after your teaching, wisdom, and righteousness; for instructing and counseling us to stay away from gluttony and over imbibing in strong drink, to seek after your Holy Spirit instead.

We give our hearts to you Father and seek to walk down the path which you have ordained for us to follow; the path of blessing and freedom away from drunkenness perversion, and chains.

Thanks for the freedom we have in following your guidance and the honor and blessings you give us in the process; thank you Father for the love that you give us daily and help us to spread that love to all we come in contact with.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
