Proverbs 6:16-19 (NLT)
There are six things the Lord hates—
no, seven things he detests:
You rescue the humble, but you humiliate the proud. (Ps 18:27) We invite Your holy angels to make war on the spirit of arrogance in the Mississippi Delta, especially in the homes and schools, . . .
a lying tongue,
and to cast down the spirits of deceit.
hands that kill the innocent,
a heart that plots evil,
feet that race to do wrong,
The wicked are always searching for helpless victims. (Ps 10:8b) We invite Your holy angels to make war on the wicked who prey on children in the Delta, . . .
a false witness who pours out lies,
to pull down false ideologies and religions, . . .
a person who sows discord in a family.
and to drive the sowers of family discord away. Amen.
