Weekly Watch Focus: Honor our Fathers

FRIDAY, Jun 14, 2013 The Bible commands us to honor our fathers and mothers. Those who obey this command open their lives for God’s choicest blessings. The Apostles’ Creed begins with, “I believe in God, the Father Almighty.” As we observe Fathers’ Day, may we honor and worship Father God. Let us repent of the degradation of our Judeo-Christian foundations and restore honor for the role of this nation’s Founding Fathers. Let us honor our natural fathers and our spiritual fathers in the Church. Let us pray for grace and healing of broken family relationships. May Father God fill the gap for children in broken homes. Above all, let us give thanks for Father God’s gracious gift of His Son for the salvation of all.

Eph. 6:1-3 “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. ‘Honor your father and mother,’ which is the first commandment with promise: ‘that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.’”

Eph. 4:6,” There is one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”

Malachi 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.”

Josh. 24:15b, “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Psalm 68:5, “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.”

Jn 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
