Your Good Daughters

Proverbs 2 Prayer:
 
Oh my Father – if I accept Your words and store up Your commands within me, turning my ear to wisdom and applying my heart to understanding—

indeed, if I call out for holy insight and cry aloud for supernatural understanding, and if I look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then I will understand the fear of YOU and find YOUR knowledge. For You alone give wisdom; from Your mouth alone come knowledge and understanding.

I am believing You hold success in store for me when I am upright,
I am believing You are a shield to me when my walk is blameless,
that You will guard my course when I am just and protect my way when I am faithful.
 
Then – THEN – I will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path. For wisdom will enter my heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to my soul. Discretion will protect me, and understanding will guard me. Wisdom will save me from the ways of godless people, from humans whose words are perverse though they seem fair, who have left the straight paths to walk in dark ways, who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.
 
YOUR wisdom will save me also from an adulterous spirit, from the wayward spirit with its seductive words, who would have me prove unfaithful to the partner of my youth and ignore the covenant I made before God. Surely that spirit’s words lead down to death and its paths to the realm of the dead. None who listen and follow after it return or attain the paths of life.
 
Thus I will walk in the ways of Your good daughters and I will keep to the paths of Your righteous warriors. Let me be upright so I will live in the land, I want to be blameless so I can remain in it; but I know that if I am wicked I will be cut off from the land, and should I prove unfaithful, I will be torn from it.
