-Praying the Proverbs 8:22-36

by Dr. D ~ April 28th, 2021

22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.

36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. (KJV)


Our Father,

Thank you for creating your Wisdom and Word in the very beginning before you brought forth the physical world.

Help us O Lord, to listen to your instruction and by your Holy Spirit help us to apply your teaching and wisdom to our daily lives.

We know that living by your wisdom and Word, you have promised us your favor. But better than your favor is your love that is available for all of us who are your children through faith in your Son Jesus. Your love sustains us and in the process we seek to be closer to you and our love and thankfulness for you increases.

Thank you Father for the Wisdom and guidance that you make available to us through your Word and Holy Spirit. 

In Jesus Name, Amen.

-Proverbs 8:12-21

by Dr. D ~ April 26th, 2021

12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.

13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.

15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.

16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.

17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

18 Riches and honor are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.

19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.

20 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:

21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures. (KJV)


Our Father,

We thank you for the counsel and sound wisdom that you give us through your Holy Spirit. We ask that you would continue to strengthen us through insights and knowledge of the truth that can come only through you. We ask that you would continue to lead us down the path of righteousness.

Please continue to guide us away from pride and arrogance and lead us away from the paths that the evil one wants us to travel down. We ask that you would continue to discipline us when we depart from the light given us and the path that you have inspired us to travel on.

We want to continue to diligently seek your face and we are thankful for the love that you have always shown us. By your Holy Spirit we continue to love you and your Son more and more every day. You are our inheritance and everything that we have of worth in this life and in the eternal life to come.

In Jesus Name , Amen.

-Praying the Proverbs 8:1-11

by Dr. D ~ April 24th, 2021

8 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?

2 She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.

3 She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.

4 Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man.

5 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.

6 Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.

7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.

8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.

9 They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.

11 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. (KJV)


Our Father,

Thank you for the Wisdom that your Holy Spirit calls out and gives us in daily counsel. We learn sense and prudence from your teaching; we utter the truth with our lips and wickedness is far from us with your help.

Let us always respect your guidance which leads us on the righteous path and corrects our speech so that nothing cooked or twisted  comes out of our mouth. Let only those things which lift up others spring from our lips; let us pay attention to your counsel so that our tongues bring only blessings instead of curses.

Father, your instruction is more worthy than silver, your knowledge surpasses anything that we can buy with the purest gold, and your wisdom is better the finest jewels. Nothing compares to your counsel, wisdom, and instruction.

May we always listen to your direction and apply it;  that we might have the abundant life promised to those who are your children through faith in your Son.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

-Praying the Proverbs 7:1-27

by Dr. D ~ April 22nd, 2021

7 My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.

2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.

4 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:

5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.

6 For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,

7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,

8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,

9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:

10 And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.

11 (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:

12 Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)

13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,

14 I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.

15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.

16 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.

17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.

19 For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:

20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.

21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.

22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;

23 Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.

24 Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.

25 Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.

26 For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.

27 Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death. (KJV)


Our Father,

Help us through your Holy Spirit to keep your word and and treasure your commandments. Let us live a blessed life with your teaching as the sole path that we look for. Write your word on our hearts and let us always be faithful to your guidance and wisdom. 

We pray for those who seek love in all of the wrong places; may they find true love and peace that can only come through the grace and mercy available through faith in your Son Jesus. Let their lives be transformed and receive forgiveness from all of their unfaithful ways and turn towards following your teaching and be saved in this life and the life to come.

Father, show us the plans of the enemy and keep us from temptation. Also, forgive us all of the wrong paths that we have traveled down in the past and continue to shine your light on the steps and direction that you have called us to walk; the paths that will bring us blessing and abundance in this life and for all eternity. 

In Jesus Name, Amen.

-Praying the Proverbs 6:20-35

by Dr. D ~ April 21st, 2021

20 My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

21 Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.

22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.

25 Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.

26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adultress will hunt for the precious life.

27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?

28 Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?

29 So he that goeth in to his neighbor’s wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.

30 Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;

31 But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

33 A wound and dishonor shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.

34 For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.

35 He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.


Our Father,

Your commandments are  a lamp and your teaching a light to right and blessed living. Let us also be grateful for your reproofs and discipline that keep us walking in the paths of righteousness and divert us from the plans of the enemy.

Today we pray for our very thoughts that they may not even entertain visions in our mind of intimacy with our neighbor’s spouse or beautiful men or woman we happen to see. Your Son Jesus taught us that thoughts themselves can become adultery and certainly they lead the way to action.

In your Word you counsel us; that we need to be careful not to be burned even by being close to acting on the contemplation of evil. Help us to avoid situations that may put us in the midst of temptation.

In our times, pornography is a major problem even among your people. It is viewed in secret and many do not see the harm in it but do not consider the injury and abuse of those producing it nor do many understand that nothing is done in secret that you do not see. By your Holy Spirit discipline your people to stay away from visions of fornication and adultery that will change our very thinking and lead us down the paths of unrighteousness and infidelity both in thoughts and action.

Lord lift us up and let us dwell upon those things which are edifying and loving both for us and for everyone we know and love.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

-Praying the Proverbs 6:1-19

by Dr. D ~ April 20th, 2021

6 My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger,

2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

3 Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.

4 Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.

5 Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

12 A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.

13 He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

14 Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.

15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. (KJV)


Our Father,

You have said in your word that there are seven things which are an abomination to you. Help us O Lord through the guidance of your Holy Spirit to avoid those things and the calamity they bring with them. Let us always be a blessing to you and others.

May we always be humble and our eyes always displaying your love rather than an haughty self-important attitude.

May our tongues always tell all of the truth honoring you rather than the lying speech and deceptions of our enemy the Devil.

May our hands be involved with building up others and fighting for the truth rather than shedding innocent blood.

May our hearts always be full of your love and looking for ways to help everyone rather than devising plans that hurt others.

May our feet always be shod with your Gospel of peace rather than running down the paths of destruction built by the author of wickedness.

May our breath always bear witness to the truth rather than tearing down others with false testimony and the hurting rumors encouraged by the father of lies.

May we always sow joy and love among our brothers and sisters rather than discord; unity in the Holy Spirit rather than division.

May we always be a blessing to others rather than a curse.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

-Praying the Proverbs 5:1-23

by Dr. D ~ April 19th, 2021

5 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:

2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.

3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.

5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.

6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.

7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:

9 Lest thou give thine honor unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:

10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labors be in the house of a stranger;

11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,

12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;

13 And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!

14 I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.

15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.

16 Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.

17 Let them be only thine own, and not strangers’ with thee.

18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.

19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.

20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?

21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings.

22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.

23 He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray. (KJV)


Our Father,

We know that all of our ways and actions are before your eyes even those things supposedly done in secret. We seek a secret life only on our knees before you and ask for help from your Holy Spirit to avoid temptation when it comes calling.

We pray that with your help our love for our spouses will continue to grow and not diminish over the years. Let them always be the delight of our eyes even after time may have taken the beauty of youth away. Let a different kind of beauty be reflected in our relationship and let us always find  contentment and joy in our life together.

Help us see and reject the plans of the enemy that would come against us and cause division and separation. Let the water of your Holy Spirit cleanse our thoughts and flow through our relationship bringing us ever closer to you and to each other.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

-Praying the Proverbs 4:20-27

by Dr. D ~ April 16th, 2021

20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. (KJV)


Our Father,

We want to incline our ears to your words. We realize that we can only be successful bringing your healing and your blessings in all of our life and ways by listening to the counsel of your Holy Spirit.

Help us to purify our hearts and our thinking; inspire us to correct our speech and our paths that we might not deviate from your road of righteousness but always be faithful to your counsel.

Help us to realize the importance of disciplining our eyes that we will look upon those things that will only build us up and bless our lives like your word and teaching.  Help us also to watch our speech. May evil thoughts and speech be far from us; may we always demonstrate your love by building up and blessing others instead.

We thank you for your help and guidance always and the mercy and love that you continue to give us daily.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

-Praying the Proverbs 4:10-19

by Dr. D ~ April 15th, 2021

10 Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

12 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.

15 Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.

16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.

17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.

18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. (KJV)


Our Father,

Thank you for teaching us the way of wisdom and for leading us in the paths of righteousness. By your Holy Spirit help us to always remember and keep hold of your instruction.

Protect us from temptation, from following down the paths of the evil one; keep us from stumbling and walking towards wickedness. Thank you for protecting us from the bread of wickedness and the drink of violence. Like a good shepherd you have provided us with everything we need in this world and in the life to come through faith in your Son Jesus.

Thank you for showing us the right path wherein to walk by the light of your word and Holy Spirit.  Let us always walk in your light that guides us along the way; the bright light that only comes when we follow your word and teaching. 

Thank you, you are a good Father to us who loves us completely and you only want the best for your children. Thank you for your presence which is always with us and gives us what we need even in the midst of all the chaos around us. We praise you again and again.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

-Praying the Proverbs 4:1-9

by Dr. D ~ April 14th, 2021

4 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.

2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.

3 For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.

4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.

5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

6 Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.

7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

8 Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honor, when thou dost embrace her. (KJV)


Our Father,

Through your Holy Spirit,  teach us your precepts and help us to remember your teaching that we might hold fast to your wisdom and ways and always be blessed.

You have become a Father to us like none we have had in this world. Let your commandments be remembered and written on our hearts. Let your wisdom not only be honored in our midst but let it become a natural part of our lives. 

According to your promises, let us receive your blessings in this life and in the life to come through our faith in your Son Jesus.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
