Prayer for Fathers
Father, we celebrate and give thanks for earthly fathers today, and come before You and ask for a mighty move of Your Holy Spirit in their hearts, minds and spirits. Lord, may they understand, realize and respond appropriately in accordance to the very significant role they play in the lives of their children. Father, may they know and understand that what they do and don’t do today has consequences in the lives of their children not only today, but for the days and years to come, even unto the third and fourth generation. Show them how to speak and manifest blessings, and not curses into the hearts, minds and lives of their children, Lord. Give them strength, courage and wisdom and draw them into a closer walk and relationship with You, Father. Help them learn to be the kind of men and fathers You created them to be. Teach them to love their wives in a way that brings glory and honor to Your holy name, Lord, and peace and security to the hearts and minds of their children. Continually renew their minds and give them an unquenchable thirst and hunger for You and the meat of Your Word. And lead them to walk in the light of YOUR ways, so that their hearts and minds ALWAYS seek after You.
Praying on the Armor of God – Ephesians 6:10-17
The Armor of God 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand againstthe devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
