Heavenly Father, thank You for our great salvation in Christ and that in HIM is found all wisdom and knowledge. Thank You for the many principles and precepts that are so helpful and encouraging in the book of Proverbs. I pray that order my life by applying the wise concepts and that I would trust in You in all things and not seek to do anything according to my own limited understanding. Give me discernment I pray and keep me from all forms of self-delusion and self-deception. May I never be foolish enough to journey along the path that may seem right to me but ends in destruction. Thank You that You have promised to guide my steps and may my ear be ever open to Your direction - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
