Proverbs 23:17 (NIV®)
Do not let your heart envy sinners.
Proverbs 4:23 (NIV®)
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
Proverbs 23:12 (NIV®)
Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge.
Proverbs 23:26 (NIV®)
My son, give me your heart and let your eyes keep to my ways.
I am learning to trust in the Lord with all my heart & lean not on my own understanding; in all my ways I acknowledge him, and he will make my paths straight.
I choose not to be wise in my own eyes; To fear the Lord and shun evil. God will bring health to my body and nourishment to my bones.
I will honor the Lord with my wealth, with the first fruits of all I have;
then my barns will be filled to overflowing, and my vats will brim over with new wine.
Adapted from—Proverbs 3:5-10 (NIV®)
You are the Author of our salvation, the Firstfrutits of our salvation. You are making intercession for us right now. Pour out Your Spirit upon us now, a spirit of grace & supplication. A spirit of intercession, have mercy upon us and upon our nation. Turn us from our godless, selfish, and sinful ways. Give us a receptive heart to cooperate with You. In Your name, amen.
