Discussion for Proverbs 1

    Hi, Lisa; There are wonderful prayers in the Bible, for us to know what we should ask for, and how; Psalm 119 (e.g.) and the Epistles are a good place to start. As we read, and pray about what we read, we gain understanding. He gave us this whole big Bible, full of knowledge and understanding, for all we need to know in this life; and to prepare ourselves for meeting Him, for the day of eternity.

    Dear Valarie - The Lord has called you by name, and chosen you for Salvation. There are many prayers in the Bible; they were written for us to learn how to pray. Psalm 119 has great prayers for understanding, as also the Epistles of Paul; (Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians). Feed on the Scriptures; "Write them down, pray them in, and work them out!" We live by every word of God. He gives us life.

    Isaac, the Lord Jesus loves you and He has many things to show you.We understand only by His Spirit, which inspired the holy Prophets and Apostles to write the Bible.That's why we need the Holy Spirit, to give us understanding and lead us in walking in the truth.God teaches us knowledge and causes us to grow little by little over time and by doing all He says.
