Weekly Watch Focus: Honor the Mothers

FRIDAY, May 9, 2014, For long life, blessing, and a healthy society, the Word of God instructs us to honor our parents and elders. In this present age, our Western culture exalts youth. Let us repent where we have dishonored and neglected our parents and elders. This Mother’s Day, give thanks for our mothers and fathers, natural and spiritual. Ask the Lord how you can continue to love and honor them. May the Lord hearken to the prayers of the mothers as He honored the cry of Hannah in the Bible. Let the mothers specifically release blessing on the children.

Eph. 6:2-3, “’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.’”

Exod. 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.”

I Sam. 1:20, “So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, “Because I have asked for him from the Lord.”


As we honor Mother’s Day, may the Lord hearken to the anguished cry of the mothers and fathers in Nigeria whose daughters have been kidnapped and enslaved by the extreme Islamist terror group, Boko Haram. This terrorist group opposes the education of girls in West-Africa and have kidnapped, enslaved, and killed hundreds and thousands of innocent children in recent years. Pray for a miracle for these 276 Christian, Nigerian girls that are being held now by this Islamist terrorist group. Pray that the good people of Nigeria are able to defeat these terrorists.

Ps. 27:2-5, When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war may rise against me, in this I will be confident. One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

Ps. 91:5,6, “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”

Ps. 18:37, “I have pursued my enemies and overtaken them; neither did I turn back again till they were destroyed.”

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.
Pray for financial recovery from what many economists are calling a recession. We humbly pray for a healthy economy and that integrity would be restored in leadership.
