21 Day Fasting and Prayer Focus – Day 4
 
Word: Family
 
Prayer:
Lord God help us to honor, love and serve one of the greatest institutions created by you – Family! In a culture where it seems as though people are busier than ever and ever striving for more, help us to balance our time in a way that honors family. May we prioritize in such a way that our families, both biological and spiritual, are blessed by our attention, love, time, care and faithfulness. May we set patterns for generations to come that will honor you. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
 
Scriptures:
 
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
 
“Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.”
 
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior’s hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.
 
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the Lord.
 
Whoever brings ruin on their family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise.
 
The wicked die and disappear, but the family of the godly stands firm.
 
A greedy man brings trouble to his family, but he who hates bribes will live.
 
God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
 
But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
