Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, And let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, And he turn away his wrath from him.
Proverbs 24:17‭-‬18 KJV

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Lord, please help me to remember not to be glad, even when the wicked receives their just punishment. For all mankind was created by You, every person is created in Your image, thus I shouldn’t be happy when people choose evil and the consequences of that choice. Lord, rather, help me to be understanding when I see wickedness increase, recalling Your Word and what is ultimately awaiting those who refuse Your salvation. Lord, help me to hate sin, but never to grow callous to those who fall into it and the destruction they are bringing upon themselves. Lord, please let those who are abusing others for their own gain feel the consequences of their wicked and turn away from such things. Please help those of us who know You to live in such a way as to stand firm in Your statues, but never stop sharing Your name and the gift of salvation. Lord, help me to know how to speak the truth with love. Thank You. Amen.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You that You are completely trustworthy. There is no one nor anything which can possibly compare to Your worthiness to be trusted. For You, Lord, are God and there is none like You. Thank You for being as loving as You are righteous. Thank You that You both fulfilled all that was required to offer us the gift of salvation, You sustain us daily. Lord, may my life bring glory to Your name. Please comfort those who are hurting. Please encourage those who mourn. Please give grace to the humble and patience to those who wait upon You. Lord Jesus, I love You. Thank You for being my refuge. Amen.

Psalm 100:2 KJV — Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for the honor and blessing of praise and worship given to You. Lord, may my thoughts and the intents of my heart be pleasing before You. May my mind rest securely in Your Word and the promises You have granted through Your grace. Lord, nothing on this Earth is as valuable nor as permanent as Your salvation. The hope of Heaven and the blessings of eternity spent in Your presence is incredible! Can anything compare? Nothing! For You alone are the Savior of the world. Only in You might I be saved. Thus, I surrender myself before You in adoration and praise. Thank You, Jesus for all Your marvelous works! May my service be with joy and gladness no matter my task. Please, Lord, let my life reflect Your love. Please teach my wayward heart to be steadfast in Your commandments, faithful, patient in tribulation, and always giving You all the glory. For great is Your faithfulness and greatly shall You be praised! Amen.

To know wisdom and instruction, To perceive the words of understanding, To receive the instruction of wisdom, Justice, judgment, and equity; To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion— A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, To understand a proverb and an enigma, The words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:2‭-‬7 NKJV

Please fill my mouth with praise and may my heart overflow with gratitude! Thank You, Jesus! Amen.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:1‭, ‬3‭-‬5 NKJV
