Encouragement and Prayer: Help the Fatherless! (06/24/21)


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.

“The victim commits himself to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.”
Psalm 10:14 (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 accurately reflect the character of God as you provide help to the fatherless.  Pray that God’s love and compassion would be seen in you as learn to help those who have no one to help them.  Pray that you would trust in God’s help when you are in need.

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.

In prayer,
