Oh, the wisdom of Proverbs, Father. Keep my feet on the path toward righteousness. This is my prayer as well for my children and grandchildren. The enemy stalks, waiting to steal, kill and destroy. Steer us clear of his traps. I ask humbly in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen
“My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. If they say, ‘Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood; let us ambush the innocent without reason; like Sheol let us swallow them alive, and whole, like those who go down to the pit; we shall find all precious goods, we shall fill our houses with plunder; throw in your lot among us; we will all have one purse’— my son, do not walk in the way with them; hold back your foot from their paths, for their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood. For in vain is a net spread in the sight of any bird, but these men lie in wait for their own blood; they set an ambush for their own lives. Such are the ways of everyone who is greedy for unjust gain; it takes away the life of its possessors.” (Proverbs 1: 10-19 ESV)
