Focus Scripture: Proverbs 9:2-6
Wisdom has built her house,
She has hewn out her seven pillars;
2 She has slaughtered her meat,
She has mixed her wine,
She has also furnished her table.
3 She has sent out her maidens,
She cries out from the highest places of the city,
4 “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!”
As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,
5 “Come, eat of my bread
And drink of the wine I have mixed.
6 Forsake foolishness and live,
And go in the way of understanding.
Omniscient God, help us live simple lives, forsake foolishness, and seek wisdom. We lift up our prayer concerns. Please bless us out of your abundance; grant us:
- Peace in our valleys.
- Deliverance from those things that keep us bound.
- Protection from the forces of evil.
- Justice for the oppressed.
- Comfort for those who mourn.
- Soundness for troubled minds.
- Healing for the sick.
- Shelter from the storm.
- Rest for the weary.
- Abundant life through Jesus Christ.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen
