-Praying Thru Proverbs: 30: 1-17

by Dr. D ~ May 2nd, 2019

30 The words of Agur son of Jakeh. The oracle.[a]

The man declares, I am weary, O God;
I am weary, O God, and worn out.[b]
2 Surely I am too stupid to be a man.
I have not the understanding of a man.
3 I have not learned wisdom,
nor have I knowledge of the Holy One.
4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
Who has gathered the wind in his fists?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is his son’s name?
Surely you know!

5 Every word of God proves true;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
6 Do not add to his words,
lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.

7 Two things I ask of you;
deny them not to me before I die:
8 Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
give me neither poverty nor riches;
feed me with the food that is needful for me,
9 lest I be full and deny you
and say, “Who is the Lord?”
or lest I be poor and steal
and profane the name of my God.

10 Do not slander a servant to his master,
lest he curse you, and you be held guilty.

11 There are those[c] who curse their fathers
and do not bless their mothers.
12 There are those who are clean in their own eyes
but are not washed of their filth.
13 There are those—how lofty are their eyes,
how high their eyelids lift!
14 There are those whose teeth are swords,
whose fangs are knives,
to devour the poor from off the earth,
the needy from among mankind.

15 The leech has two daughters:
Give and Give.[d]
Three things are never satisfied;
four never say, “Enough”:
16 Sheol, the barren womb,
the land never satisfied with water,
and the fire that never says, “Enough.”

17 The eye that mocks a father
and scorns to obey a mother
will be picked out by the ravens of the valley
and eaten by the vultures. –ESV

Our Father,

Thank you Father for strengthening us when we are weary; for teaching us your wisdom and for helping us to live by your understanding and teaching.

You have blessed our lives through our faith in your Son Jesus, who created all things and came down from heaven to teach us, died on the cross for our sin and salvation, and ascended back into heaven to sit at your right hand and intercede continually for us.

Your Word is true and you have become our faithful parent and shield in this life and the life to come having adopted us into your family through your Son Jesus who is the name above all others. Please continue to discipline us in love and counsel us to follow your teaching and not add our own philosophy and cultural ideas to it.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
