A Prayer for the Father of Your Youngsters
By: Emily Rose Massey
Reward the Lord! Blessed is the person who fears the Lord, who significantly delights in his commandments! His offspring will probably be mighty within the land; the era of the upright will probably be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his home, and his righteousness endures perpetually. – (Psalm 112:1-3, ESV)
My husband and I’ve this “recreation” that we play: “Inform me one thing you’re keen on about me” the place we listing a top quality that we admire about one another. Since we’ve got been married for ten years now, I’m positive we’ve got repeated a number of the solutions, however I at all times attempt to provide you with one thing new or one thing which will pertain to our present season of life.
At some point, whereas we have been taking part in, I informed him, “I really like that you’re a arduous employee.” He’s at all times working arduous to supply for our household and assist me care for issues round the home (I’ve by no means mowed a garden in my life!). I’m grateful for that high quality of his as a result of this man is something however lazy.
But, if I’m being sincere, as a result of my love language is high quality time, it generally can get underneath my pores and skin that he has bother slowing down and resting.
Most of us have a drive to work, work, work. We discover pleasure in accomplishment and productiveness and have a longing to supply for our households. However I feel you will need to discover a stability between work and relaxation, very like we see how God rested on the seventh day in creation.
God has given us wives to our husbands (and vice versa), so you will need to pray for them on this space in order that they don’t turn into exhausted each bodily and mentally. However extra vital than praying for them to seek out stability and relaxation, their stroll with the Lord is of utmost precedence. Aside from God’s grace, we’re all restricted, so we want to verify we’re leaning upon the Lord and trying to Him for knowledge and energy for every little thing we put our hand to. We see in Psalm 112 the advantages of a person who fears the Lord:
“Reward the Lord! Blessed is the person who fears the Lord, who significantly delights in his commandments! His offspring will probably be mighty within the land; the era of the upright will probably be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his home, and his righteousness endures perpetually” (Psalm 112:1-3, ESV).
A person who seeks the Lord and trusts in His phrase is a purpose for reward. God calls this man and his kids blessed. This isn’t a passage about “getting wealthy fast,” however we see that along with the blessings of God’s peace, pleasure, and love in our life, God offers and blesses us materially as properly. As a father’s love for God grows, and he leads his kids in God’s righteous methods, his kids will need to imitate their dad and observe in his footsteps. Far more than educating them find out how to work arduous and use the presents that God has given them, a father with a worry for the Lord and a starvation for God’s phrase is likely one of the finest treasures he may give them. As girls, we should always pray for the boys in our life, particularly once they have kids, that we might discover ways to discover a stability of labor and relaxation, however most of all, a want to hunt God first in all issues.
We pray for the boys in our lives. If the daddy of our kids doesn’t know you, we pray that You’ll draw him to Your self and that He would have a starvation for Your phrase. We pray that He would be taught the significance of relaxation in order that he may be restored. We ask that he would lean upon Your grace in all that You’ve known as him to do.
We thank You that You’re a devoted Father who at all times offers for our wants. We pray that the daddy of our kids at all times appears to you first for knowledge and energy as he learns find out how to stroll in your righteous methods and leads his kids within the admonition of You.
In Jesus’ identify, Amen.
