Prayers and Confessions from the Book of Proverbs

The book of Proverbs is revered by Christians as an expression of the Wisdom of God. Here are some personalized prayers and confessions based on this book.

Proverbs 12 Confessions

I love discipline and instruction, and I love knowledge. I do not hate correction – I appreciate it. If I hated correction I would be like a brute animal. Pr 12.1

I choose to be good – and receive grace from God. I reject wicked devices. These bring the condemnation of the Lord. Pr 12.2

I put down roots in the Lord that cannot be moved. I reject wicked ways, by which I may never be established in righteousness or truth or anything worthwhile. Pr 12.3

My wife will not cause me shame and be as rottenness in my bones. She is a virtuous woman.

I will not be lazy and become poor. My diligent hands will bring wealth. Pr 10.4

I quietly accept commands from those in authority rather than chattering like a fool.

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)

Eternal Security – Dare we believe it?

Back in 1997 I spoke with a pastor and the subject of the eternal security
of the believer came up. This pastor is a lovely, gracious man and is doing
many things to reach people in the community with the gospel. He obviously
loves the Lord and loves people. When I questioned him regarding the contents
of one of the theological books he was reading, it came out that he believed
in the doctrine that a truly born again believer is eternally secure, no
matter what he may do from that time on.
