Proverbs 1:20-22 “Wisdom calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in the open squares. She cries out in the chief concourses, At the openings of the gates in the city she speaks her words: “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning, And fools hate knowledge.”
Leader, I bless you with open ears to hear Wisdom call to you. I bless you with enquiring from her as you move in your sphere of influence, as you make decisions, and as you take hold of new opportunities. I bless you with a desire for things of substance, leaving the childish things behind. I bless you not just with wisdom, but with an understanding of the value placed on wisdom by God. Just as those ignoring her call will eat the fruit of their foolishness, I bless you with reaping rich rewards and unparalleled securities for your humility in acknowledging that you need wisdom and your determination to acquire such.
Proverbs 1:24, 27-28, 31-33 “Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded, When your terror comes like a storm, And your destruction comes like a whirlwind, When distress and anguish come upon you. “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me. Therefore, they shall eat the fruit of their own way, And be filled to the full with their own fancies. For the turning away of the simple will slay them, And the complacency of fools will destroy them; But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, And will be secure, without fear of evil.”
