-Praying Thru Proverbs: 25: 15-28

by Dr. D ~ April 19th, 2019

15 With patience a ruler may be persuaded,
and a soft tongue will break a bone.
16 If you have found honey, eat only enough for you,
lest you have your fill of it and vomit it.
17 Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor’s house,
lest he have his fill of you and hate you.
18 A man who bears false witness against his neighbor
is like a war club, or a sword, or a sharp arrow.
19 Trusting in a treacherous man in time of trouble
is like a bad tooth or a foot that slips.
20 Whoever sings songs to a heavy heart
is like one who takes off a garment on a cold day,
and like vinegar on soda.
21 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat,
and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,
22 for you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the Lord will reward you.
23 The north wind brings forth rain,
and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.
24 It is better to live in a corner of the housetop
than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.
25 Like cold water to a thirsty soul,
so is good news from a far country.
26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain
is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
27 It is not good to eat much honey,
nor is it glorious to seek one’s own glory.[c]
28 A man without self-control
is like a city broken into and left without walls. –ESV

Our Father,

Thank you for helping us to be patient; by ourselves we would force every issue and suffer loss in the process. Thank you for helping us to tell the truth and never a false witness; you have blessed us in the process.

Thank you for teaching us to love our enemies and do good to them always; in the process you have blessed us for following you in word and deed. Thank you Lord for counseling us to avoid conflict and backbiting; in the process we have been able to demonstrate your peace and  love to others.

Thank you for helping us to avoid argument and needless quarrels with our spouses and loved ones; nothing good comes from division in families. Thank you for the self-control that you have helped us to maintain; without you we would destroy our homes and relationships. Thank you for your continual help; praise your name Lord, praise your name forevermore.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
