-Praying Thru Proverbs: 27: 1-12

by Dr. D ~ April 24th, 2019

27 Do not boast about tomorrow,
for you do not know what a day may bring.
2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;
a stranger, and not your own lips.
3 A stone is heavy, and sand is weighty,
but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both.
4 Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming,
but who can stand before jealousy?
5 Better is open rebuke
than hidden love.
6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend;
profuse are the kisses of an enemy.
7 One who is full loathes honey,
but to one who is hungry everything bitter is sweet.
8 Like a bird that strays from its nest
is a man who strays from his home.
9 Oil and perfume make the heart glad,
and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel.[a]
10 Do not forsake your friend and your father’s friend,
and do not go to your brother’s house in the day of your calamity.
Better is a neighbor who is near
than a brother who is far away.
11 Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad,
that I may answer him who reproaches me.
12 The prudent sees danger and hides himself,
but the simple go on and suffer for it.  –ESV

Our Father,

We may not know what tomorrow may bring but we can depend upon you and your love. Help us O Lord to avoid anger and jealousy; help us to change our very thinking and bring it under control and to reflect the teaching of your Son Jesus.

Help us Father to remain under your guidance and never stray from the path that you have called us to; let us be a friend of all and demonstrate your love and caring to all we come in contact with.

We want to make your heart glad; help us father to be wise and follow your direction rather than the path that seems right in our own eyes but isn’t. We seek the gift of discernment that can only come through your Holy Spirit.

May we always be faithful and willing to accept your correction; we make mistakes and sin but you are always faithful to forgive us when we repent. Help us to always forgive others also in your name and the name of your Son which is above all others. Thank you Father for your help and abiding love.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
