Proverbs 11 Prayers and Confessions

Lord, you declare that false balances and unjust weights are an abomination to yourself. So, I solemnly commit to do business without cheating or deceiving others, or representing things to be other than the way they really are. I pray you will find delight in the way I do business, in Jesus’ name, Amen. (vs 1)

Lord, open my eyes to the value of lowliness, for “with the lowly is wisdom”. Give me this wisdom. At the same time, I reject the coming of pride, which brings shame. (vs 2)

Lord, so work in me that you will consider that I am upright, and have integrity. So let me be guided aright. Deliver me from transgression, sin and all that tends to destruction. (vs 3).

Since “riches do not profit in the day of wrath” I do not put my trust in riches. I trust you Lord for both the gift of righteousness and the power to live righteously, that I may be delivered from all death – be it spiritual, physical or eternal.
(vs 4)

Lord, I commit to doing the right thing, in your strength. Show me how to live a blameless life. Deliver me from all wickedness. I know that “the wicked will fall by his own wickedness”. (vs 5)

Lord, I am believing for deliverance because of the righteous life you are enabling me to live, as an upright man. I reject ungodly lusts. I reject unfaithfulness to you Lord. I stay clear of the traps of sin. (vs 6)

The righteous is delivered from trouble. I am righteous in Christ and value righteous living, and so I am delivered from trouble. The trouble comes to the wicked instead. I fear God and shun wickedness because it leads to trouble. (vs 8)

I pray the Lord delivers me from the mouth of hypocrites. I thank God the Father that through knowledge I will be delivered. (vs 9).

I am righteous in Christ and when it goes well with me, the city rejoices. So it is good for things to go well with me. (vs 10)

The city is exalted by the blessing of the upright. I bless the city I live in, and I also anticipate blessing because God teaches me in the ways of uprightness. (vs 11)

I do not despise my neighbour, I am a man of understanding and I just hold my peace when I don’t like what someone is doing. (vs 12)

I am of a faithful spirit and I conceal a matter, unlike a talebearer. (vs 13)

In the multitude of counselors there is safety and I seek out and receive counsel from God-fearing people wise in their domain of expertise. (vs 14)

I will not go surety (guarantor) for someone else, because people who do this will surely suffer. I hate being surety (guarantor) and therefore I am secure. (vs 15)

My wife is a gracious women and retains honor. (vs 16)

I am a merciful man and do good to my own soul. I am not cruel. (vs 17)

I do not do deceptive work. I sow righteousness and will have a sure reward. (vs 18)

Righteousness leads to life. I pursue righteousness, not evil, for he who pursues evil pursues it to his own death. (vs 19)

Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the Lord, but those who are blameless in their ways are his delight. I choose by God’s grace to be blameless in my ways. (vs20)

  1. Please pray for me that God would deliver me from evil spirits that torment my mind with fear and sexual thoughts. I have confessed all of my sins and have turned to God but I’m still dealing with these evil spirits for about 10 years. Thank-you B

      Brother, if you accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, you are free already.
      John 8:36, Says that if the Son has set you free, you will be free indeed,
      Romans 6:6 states: For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with,that we should no longer be slaves to sin—
      Romans 6: 7 states: because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.
      Claim your freedom in Jesus name! And it is not enough to claim it, act on it in faith! That is don’t anticipate that you’ll be tormented with thoughts of fear and sexual immorality. Claim your freedom aloud in prayer, renounce all ties you have or had to the devil, ask Jesus to cast out all the demons of despair, fear and perversion in your heart, and ask Him to guide you in all truth through His Holy Spirit. Don’t wait for a ‘feeling’ get up and act in faith! That ‘feeling’ may never come. God’s Word says that all who call on the name of the Lord Jesus will be saved. Trust in that.
      Read and commit to memory Philippians 4:8
      Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
      This isn’t a matter of trying harder. It is a matter of choosing to believe what the God of the Bible says about you through scripture and not what the the devil, your thoughts, or your flesh says. It is relying on God’s supernatural Spirit and God’s grace to not only forgive and cleanse you from sin, but to keep you from sin. God says that He is:
      To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy–
      Jude 1:24
      The devil doesn’t want you to know the power you have in Jesus name. You are much stronger than any devil if you have the Son of the Living God living inside of you. Meditate on the Word of God. Try to turn focus from your problem (you can make your problem you god if you aren’t careful) to bible study, prayer, and get this…
      supplication for the saints or praying for others. Getting focus off self and onto what God wants you to do with your life and what you can do for others through selfless ministry, not only shifts your focus, it weakens the power of the devil in your life and in the life of those you are interceding for.
      I will pray for you.

      I have prayed for you. I too am in need of the same. My adult life has been plagued by evil influences. All good has come from god, and he has blessed me abundantly, it is when I practiced free will to turn away that destruction of what I loved followed.
