Proverbs 8

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


What is wisdom’s promise (verse 17-19)? What is the secret to happiness (verses 32-35)?


Do I love wisdom and search for it? Do I seek happiness in the ways of the world, or in the wisdom of the Lord?


Dear Lord, I desire to have wisdom. Remind me to seek it like treasure, and remind me that the one who sincerely seeks it will find it. May I always listen to your wisdom, disregarding the foolishness of the world, that I may have true happiness. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Keith Rast
  • Andrea Rodriguez (Willie, Yulieta)


  • Boise Rescue Mission


  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for marriages in our community…

  • that Christ-like love would be exhibited
  • for good communication between spouses
  • for unity in finances
  • salvation for non-believing spouses
  • that they would balance work and home life
  • that Godly friends and mentors would come alongside them.

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. – Ephesians 1:7-8 (HCSB)
