Give Honor

Honor your father and mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.

Exodus 20:12 and Matthew 19:19

And you shall teach them diligently to your children and speak of them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Deuteronomy 6:7

God created the family and the order of father, mother, and children. Our Lord desires unity and harmony within the family and his word gives instruction of his desires for a loving home.

Fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath; instead, bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Ephesians 6:4

I have heard this quote years ago: “Making the decision to have a child – it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”

It is so true … when our children hurt, we hurt; when they are joyful, we are joyful.

We are their best cheerleaders and equipped to pray for them with our whole-heart!

Here are a some prayers that I’ve collected.

May the Lord lead, guide and provide for each season our family walks through.
