Proverbs 1:8-19

8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.

10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:

14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:

16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.

17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.

18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.

19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof. (KJV)

Our Father,

Lead us away from evil; show us the plans of the evil one and his minions that we may avoid temptation and trouble. When enticed, show us a way out and instill in us the way of righteousness. Let us follow the example of your Son Jesus. He is our righteousness and the truth, the way, and the life.

You have adopted us into your family through faith in your Son Jesus. Let your Word be the instruction that we live by replacing the imperfect training of our natural parents.  Show us the way of joy and abundant living that will continue to bless us in this life and the life to come.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
