Proverbs 18

Read chapter

Dear God,

Thank You for Your Word and for this chapter. I am grateful for the wisdom and insights it offers. Please help me to apply these teachings to my life and to seek Your guidance in all things.

I pray that You would give me a discerning heart, that I may listen carefully and consider all perspectives before forming my opinions. Help me to be slow to anger and quick to listen, and to always speak words that bring life and encouragement to others.

I ask for Your protection from the harmful effects of gossip and negative talk, and for the strength to resist the temptation to speak ill of others. May my words be a source of healing and grace to those around me.

Lord, I also pray for humility and for the wisdom to seek and accept wise counsel from others. Help me to be open to correction and to always be willing to learn and grow.

Thank You for Your love and guidance, and for the promise that when we seek wisdom, we will find it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
