Men’s Prayer Focus
JUNE 18TH TO JUNE 24TH
Today is Father’s day and I would like us to reflect on the day and focus our prayers on being fathers this week:
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
Consider This: Taken from By Jonathan L. Perz, the Expository Files from Bible.ca
“There is no role in our modern society that suffers greater neglect as far as God is concerned than that of the father.”
“Not exasperating your children means not to purposefully do things that make their children scornful, angry, resentful, discouraged and bitter.”
Training and instructing your children in the way of the Lord:
“The need for this command to be realized in today’s society could not be more keenly felt. Under Christ, the father is the spiritual head of the home. His presence (i.e., Christ’s through the example and teaching of the father) should be felt in the home, in its rules, its worship, and through the father’s gentle love, leadership and example. One of our biggest problems is that too many fathers are not spiritual men. This must change.”
“Children are a blessing from the Lord (cf. Psa. 127:3-5). As with all blessings, there is accountability. Fathers must realize that the Spirit gave this charge regarding our children to us. He did not give it to the mother, He did not give it to the daycare. He did not give it to the babysitter. He did not give it to the nanny. He did not give it to the grandparents. Nor did He give it to the church, the school or the youth program. He gave it to fathers.”
“This means that we must endeavor to bring up godly children despite the immorality and wickedness of the today’s world.”
The Song Good Good Father says “You’re a Good Good Father It’s who you are……and I am love by you.
Pray this week guys that your children can say just that. You’re a Good Good father, it’s who you are and I am loved by you.
And pray that you are a spiritual father, leading a spiritual home, in a spiritual way that brings up spiritual children.
Thanks for you continued prayers,
