Psalm 127 v 1
Unless the Lord builds the house,
the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the guards stand watch in vain.
Words to make us think…………
Reverend X. Loved the Lord more than words and knew that God was most assuredly the almighty. Pushed all of his right buttons, said all the proper prayers and even meditated nightly.
“Look at me,” he said, “I have the full blessing of God over my life!” Double clicked his computer mouse, accessed the sermon files and printed a perfect next Sunday’s sermon. Didn’t the Lord tell his shepherds that he would bring the message if they would be his messengers? So how blessed Reverend X felt when he discovered that God had put all kinds of sermons at his disposal.
“I don’t have to spend hours in study, prayer, and preparation! I have more time for golfing, fishing and other types of recreation!”
Reverend X on Sunday next pulled out his prepared sermon, looked out over his congregation and preceded to thunder out what ‘thus saith the Lord’. With much finger shaking and pointing he admonished his flock to “yield repent, of grieving the Lord, or your fate will be sealed!”, he said. After a while he couldn’t concentrate because of all the restless movement, foot shuffling, coughing and throat clearing.
Reverend X with an angry look, wrapped up his sermon in quite a hurry, beseeching the brethren who had not received Jesus Christ to do so now and not to tarry!
He closed the service, gave the benediction, and then waved to his people as they left their seats. One would think that they would be more appreciative of hearing such a profound word, or comment on my inspiring delivery at least!
Reverend X, looking at his watch realized that he had extra time to try out his new fishing rod. Maybe I should pay a few visits to the sick and shut-in before I go and gave the nod.
He looked at the beautiful day imagining the fish in the well-stocked creek, just waiting to bite and thought, I will say an extra prayer for the sick, instead tonight.
Whistling merrily, he went on his way, thinking about all he had accomplished so far that day.

Prayer day 25
Proverbs Ch 8
Does not wisdom call out?
Does not understanding raise her voice?
At the highest point along the way,
where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
beside the gate leading into the city,
at the entrance, she cries aloud:
“To you, O people, I call out;
I raise my voice to all mankind.
You who are simple, gain prudence;
you who are foolish, set your hearts on it.
Listen, for I have trustworthy things to say;
I open my lips to speak what is right.
My mouth speaks what is true,
for my lips detest wickedness.
All the words of my mouth are just;
none of them is crooked or perverse.
To the discerning all of them are right;
they are upright to those who have found knowledge.
Choose my instruction instead of silver,
knowledge rather than choice gold,
for wisdom is more precious than rubies,
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
“I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence;
I possess knowledge and discretion.
To fear the Lord is to hate evil;
I hate pride and arrogance,
evil behavior and perverse speech.
Counsel and sound judgment are mine;
I have insight, I have power.
By me kings reign
and rulers issue decrees that are just;
by me princes govern,
and nobles—all who rule on earth.
I love those who love me,
and those who seek me find me.
With me are riches and honor,
enduring wealth and prosperity.
My fruit is better than fine gold;
what I yield surpasses choice silver.
I walk in the way of righteousness,
along the paths of justice,
bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me
and making their treasuries full.
“The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works,
before his deeds of old;
I was formed long ages ago,
at the very beginning, when the world came to be.
When there were no watery depths, I was given birth,
when there were no springs overflowing with water;
before the mountains were settled in place,
before the hills, I was given birth,
before he made the world or its fields
or any of the dust of the earth.
I was there when he set the heavens in place,
when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
when he established the clouds above
and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
when he gave the sea its boundary
so the waters would not overstep his command,
and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
Then I was constantly at his side.
I was filled with delight day after day,
rejoicing always in his presence,
rejoicing in his whole world
and delighting in mankind.
“Now then, my children, listen to me;
blessed are those who keep my ways.
Listen to my instruction and be wise;
do not disregard it.
Blessed are those who listen to me,
watching daily at my doors,
waiting at my doorway.
For those who find me find life
and receive favor from the Lord.
But those who fail to find me harm themselves;
all who hate me love death.”
