Loving Father, I don’t want to look to the evaporating riches of this world, knowing that my treasure is kept for me in heaven. Please, Father, provide for my needs today and help me not to worry about tomorrow but simply to trust in Your Word, for You have promised to supply all my needs according to Your riches and glory. Thank You, Father, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the words of wisdom in this book of Proverbs and for the warning to be cautious of hypocritical people who put on a show of generosity, but are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Give me wisdom and discernment as I travel through life so that I am prevented from falling into a trap. I know that as a man thinks, so is he. Purify my thoughts, I pray, and may the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart, reflect the grace and truth of Christ Jesus my Lord. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Father, thank You for all those that are involved in helping others with their addiction to alcohol. We thank You for places like Alcoholic Anonymous and the many Christian ministries and rehab centres that are dedicated to helping men and women recover from this debilitating and distressing addiction, and showing them the love of the Lord Jesus.
Give wisdom, grace and patience to all that are serving in one capacity or another to relieve the distress and devastation that alcoholism leaves in it wake. We pray that You would give them the right words of encouragement and advice to enable those that are addicted to permanently break free of their alcoholism and so live a more meaningful and fruitful life.
We pray that You would not only rescue alcoholic men and women from the depths of despair to which many have fallen, but also that You would raise them up into a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and bring them into newness of life in Him, to His praise and glory. This we ask in Jesus' name,
