Weekly Watch Focus: Fatherhood

FRIDAY, June 17, 2011. We live in a culture that has substituted government for real fatherhood. Even the secular media has noted that many of the recent problems with violence and flash mob attacks is rooted in fatherlessness. Let us pray for restoration of fathers and fatherhood in our nation. Let us repent for the ways that our culture has reduced the honor for fathers. May fatherhood, natural and spiritual, be honored once again in our land. Bless pastors and fathers in the church. Pray for children in broken homes that Father God will fill the gap. And as we honor fathers, let us exalt our Father in Heaven for His gracious gift of His Son.

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.”

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.”

Gen. 18:19, “For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.”

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