Proverbs 22:1- A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.
I pray that as a married couple our reputation is untarnished in any way. We know that a man is often valued “by what others say of him” (Proverbs 27:21), I pray that we will be respected in our town and people will speak highly of us. Keep us safe from the evil of gossiping mouths. Where there has been ill spoken of us, touch the lips of those who speak it with your refining fire. Let the responsibility of those involved be reveled.
May we trust in you and not be afraid of what man can do to us (psalm 56:11). Lead us, guide us and be our mighty fortress and hiding place. May our light so shine before men that they see our good works and glorify you (Matthew 5:16).
