While I continue working on what a return to the live or recorded audio/video broadcasts will be, I will still leave some written encouragement for each day. This week’s focus will be on God being a Father to the fatherless and His desire that we model that characteristic as well.
“Do not deprive the alien or the fatherless of justice.”
Deuteronomy 24:17 (NIV)
As we celebrate Father’s Day to begin the week, this week we will focus our prayer emphasis on God’s concern for the fatherless. As we pray to be more Christ-like, we must pray that our response to the fatherless would be the same as God’s. There are many in our community who live as fatherless regardless of the presence of a dad in their life.
Pray that you would make the most of every opportunity to see that the fatherless around you receive justice. Pray that you would be mindful of how your actions either help or hinder true justice for the fatherless. Pray that you would have wisdom in being an advocate for those with no voice.
Pray for discernment and wisdom to see beyond and through the divisiveness of this world so that you would love others as God loves both you and them.
