Reflection & Prayer

Proverbs 26:9 (NLT)A proverb in the mouth of a fool is like a thorny branch brandished by a drunk.

Lord God: Protect me from the folly of my own foolishness –

+ that I may respond with wisdom and grace to foolish arguments

+ that I may honor and rely on wise people to guide and direct me

+ that I may learn from my own foolishness and not repeat my mistakes

+ that I may have the humility to realize I don’t know everything and need help from wise counselors

+ that I may overcome any inclination I may have towards lethargy, laziness and fear

+ that I may stay out of other people’s arguments and speak honestly to friends

+ that I may be free from resentment, anger and jealousy

+ that I may offer heart-felt counsel and remain faithful to friends

+ that I may foresee problems and difficulties and prepare appropriately

Lord God: Purify my heart that I may live a godly and contented life, and bring honor and praise to your name – through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
