Weekly Watch Focus: Honor our Fathers

June 15, 2018—This Sunday we set aside a day to honor fathers and fatherhood. The Bible tells us, “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all” (Ephesians 4:4-6).
All fatherhood proceeds from our one true Heavenly Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus came to redeem us from sin and reveal our Heavenly Father (Matthew 11:27). The Apostles’ Creed begins with, “I believe in God, the Father Almighty.” It is by the Holy Spirit poured out at Pentecost that we cry out, “Abba, Father.”

The Bible instructs us to honor our fathers and mothers, the first commandment with a blessing. Those who obey this command open their lives for God’s choicest blessings. As we observe Father’s Day this week, may we first honor and worship our Father God. Let us also honor our natural and spiritual fathers and mothers. Society suffers without fathers, and children are the main casualties. Let us pray for restoration of fathers and the Spirit of true Fatherhood under our Father God. 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.

May the prayers of millions of Koreans and believing saints around the globe be answered, and may God bring shalom to the Korean peninsula

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.
