Proverbs 1:20-33

20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,

22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:

30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil. (KJV)

Our Father,

We Thank you for forgiving us through the sacrifice of your Son Jesus. Before we came to him we did our own thing and disregarded your teaching.

Now we ask that you would guide our paths through your Word and council that we might live the abundant life here and be blessed in the life to come. Through your Holy Spirit you have made your thoughts and guidance known to us.

Please correct us when we deviate from your Word and wisdom. We want to pay attention to your advise since our joy and future depend on it.

We thank you and praise your name for the promises that you have given to us; that we will live in safety and have your protection from the evil one and his minions.

Thank you Lord and praise your name; for your wisdom and direction is greater than any on this earth in time and eternity.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
