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.
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are
the ways of death.”

day for Proverbs 14:12
O God, I come to You filled with hurt and sadness and even anger because of my great loss. Lord I know that You have a plan for each of our lives – but I am in such pain and grief that it is hard to focus on the truth that You do care and that You have had to face deep grief and loss too. Lord my hurt and pain runs deep and I feel that my heart is breaking – I ask you to touch my hurting heart.
I know Lord that You are the God of comfort and that You have been with me every step of the way and ask You to draw ever closer to me at this time for I feel that my whole world has been shattered.

Lord I know it is true that in time the pain will lessen but please be with me – hold me close and stead me, for I know that without You I could not face another day – another hour.
I keep thinking about that song we used to sing when I was younger,
never a heartache, and never a groan, never a teardrop, and never a moan, ever a danger but there on the throne, moment by moment He thinks of His own.
Hold me Lord I pray, and keep me moment by moment…
Moment by moment I am kept in Your love,
Moment by moment I’ve life from above,
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine
Thank You Lord that You are my God,
“Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is

Dear God, I know that it is Your will to help those that are afflicted - to support the weak; to provide for the widows and orphans – and to help those that are in need.
Use my hands to be of service to those in need and use my voice to speak words of healing and encouragement to those that are afflicted and in distress.
Thank You for hearing my prayer,
“He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.”
