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 LORD watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.”
Psalm 146:9 (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 God would fill you with an attitude of generosity as He provides ways for you to sustain the fatherless. Pray that you would be one to watch over and care for the fatherless in a way that accurately reflects God’s love.
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.
