Weekly Watch Focus: Mother's Day—A Time to Honor

FRIDAY, May 9, 2013 As we celebrate Mother’s Day, let us give specific thanks for our parents, as well as spiritual parents that bless and teach us. For a long and blessed life, God’s word instructs us to honor our parents and elders. Society thrives in a culture of honor, according to this word. Let us reject and repent of values that worship at the altar of youth and disrespect the elderly and the unborn. As mothers release fresh blessings on children and grandchildren, may God heal broken family relationships and usher in a season of healing and restoration.
 

Eph 6:2, “’Honor your father and mother,’ which is the first commandment with promise.”

Mal 4:5-6, “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”

Ex. 20:12, “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.”

2 Tim. 1:5 “I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.”

On this Labor Day weekend, we speak blessings upon the American worker and upon our economy. We pray for those seeking jobs or starting new businesses.
We remember fellow believers who are oppressed and tortured for Christ’s sake. In communist China, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and other parts of the word, violent radicals or oppressive communism continue to persecute and even murder Christians.
We thank God and pray for our law enforcement. We ask the Lord for their safety and guidance as the carry out their duties with integrity.
As our children return to school, we cover them in prayer. Whether they attend public school, private school, home school, or college, we pray a special anointing over them.
There is a declaration of war in our culture against the identity of our children. Our foundational values and the preservation of identity for individuals and families through Christ as the building block of society is under attack.
