Praying the Bible ~ Proverbs 6:16-19

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: Proverbs 6:16-19
The Lord hates six things; in fact, seven are detestable to him: arrogant eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet eager to run to evil, a lying witness who gives false testimony, and one who stirs up trouble among brothers. (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, you hate evil because it is so set against your good nature. You hate evil because you are the God of kindness, mercy, and love; whereas evil seeks to kill, steal, and destroy. Father, help my heart to hate evil in my own life and to pursue your goodness with more fervor. Help me to be humble, truthful, and kind. Help me to love my neighbor in all situations, to seek their best. Amen.
